    Mach 6 bb 92 using bb30 cranks and Rockshox pike

    I just ordered the m6 frameset. I have a spare sram xo Bb30 cranks that i want to use with this frame. I read somewhere that it's not possible for this setup, until I saw this:

    BB92 TO BB30 BOTTOM BRACKET KIT
    Will this work?

    Also I'm gonna run a 150/160mm pike upfront. Anybody got any idea what the axle crown height of the pike compared to the 150mm fox 34?

    Thanks in advance

    A 160 pike is 7mm taller than a 150 Fox. The Pike has less offset as well.

    Hi endomaniac, thanks for the reply. Less offset means shorter wheelbase if I use the fork?

    Wondering if it would just about even out wheelbase with the 7mm taller? I have the Fox 34 and have experienced no negatives with 150mm and on fork overall.ran a Float 36 on my Carbine and considered the Pike for Mach 6,after several weeks on the 150mm I am sold and it gives up nothing to the 160mm,not experiencing any more pedal strikes then previously or feel less confident on all the tech and knar I enjoy.each to his own but find this fork travel to be the perfect mating for the Mach 6.

    Please note that this adapter bottom bracket is designed for use with BB92 bottom bracket shells with a press-fit ID of 41mm. Since BB92 bottom bracket shells are 92mm wide, you must use a BB30 crankset ******with a long enough spindle*******, such as the Rotor 3D+ crankset. For reference:

    3D+ MTB "Double" (2 chain rings): 115mm overall spindle length
    3D+ MTB "Triple" (3 chain rings): 123mm overall spindle length

    In the same position waiting for my frame to arrive. Just pulled the trigger on a Pike 160. Am getting the XX1 kit. Just to confirm, does anyone know the exact specs for the XX1 kit I will need? And I assume I need a BB92 bottom bracket as well? Thanks.

    GXP spindle. SRAM compatible BB92 BB like the 00.6415.033.020. 156 or 168 Q will work for the cranks.


    I forget the exact length of the SRAM BB30 spindle, but it ain't long enuff. It will fit inside the bearing, but thats about it.

    Thanks. Taking advantage of Art's Cyclery with the last their last day of 20% off. $25 for a BB is pretty good! I am a bigger guy, thinking 168 Q will make more sense.

    I've sold my bb30 xo cranks and decided to get the xx1 cranks. Can I comfirm that the mach6 frame can take both the narrow and wide Q factor configuration? What are the advantages of running a narrower Q factor crank? I'll be running a small frame I'm about 5"7
