    XX1 Cranks on Spearfish

    Does anyone know, will XX1 cranks work with a Spearfish? Maybe run the GXP with problem solvers? Anyone running these cranks?

    XX1 comes in a narrow and wide Q-factor choice. Narrow is Q156 which Salsa states won't work with the SF frame. So go with the wide (Q168) Q-factor and you should be ok.

    The Spearfish has a pf30 bb so you should be able to get the xx1 with a bb30 spindle instead of the gxp version. Problem solvers has adapter cups to be used with shimano hollowtech and fsa cranks, but I don't believe they work with gxp, unless they have changed since I bought them 2 years ago.

    SRAM makes thier own PF30->GXP adapter cups - but my above post was referencing using a BB30 crank (and the PF30 BB)
