    Giga X pipe bottom bracket and Crankset and RIP 9

    I need help. My new Rip frame arrived last week and I'm transferring leftover parts from Jet frame.
    Installed bottom bracket (giga x) but when I tighten crank arms they do not move. They will only spin around when i apply little torque only(by hand). This is strange...I didn't have this issue with Jet frame. Also the big chain ring is way too close to chain-stay.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    ....found it. I had to remove spacers since Rip shell width is 73mm. Big chain ring is way too close. I guess the best option would be replace it with bashguard.

    Big chain ring is way too close
    Got a Rip9 few days ago and I had the same concern because the big chain rig is only 4-5 mm from the chainstay. The chainstays are much wider than on any other bike I owned. However while riding it seems that it causes no problem but I changed the 44t for a 38t...
