    XX1 Crank on alloy RIP 9

    Because I'm an endless tinkerer, I'm thinking about running an XX1 crankset on my full XT RIP 9. Anyone doing this on the RIP? What Q factor are you running, if so?

    Also, anyone know if the MRP AMg fits on a RIP?

    Thanks!

    If you go XX1 crank on the rip9 & use a clutch type rear derailieur on it there is no need for a chain guide.

    My friend has put a 156 Q on his Rip9 & it works ok for him but he may have been better with the 168Q as his feet just touch the stays once in a while in the ruff.

    Thanks for the reply, muzz. Do you mean pedaling up technical climbs or descending?

    It's more just random because he has a bad pedaling style.

    The Q factor on the XT double is 172. Seems as though 168 might be better, then.

    Do you happen to know if I can use my XT bb for the GXP XX1 cranks?

    The difference is that the GXP cranks have a step down on the crank spindale on the non drive side that locks onto the BB bearing & the LH crank arm locks to the other side of that same bearing.

    You can buy a adaptor to press inside the XT BB to use GXP cranks but for the price & mucking around I always just get a GXP bottonm Bracket.

    Hope Bottom Bracket Truvativ GXP Converter | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    This is the adaptor, Many outfits make them.
