    156q factor on Nomad 3?

    I'm posting this up for a friend. Are any of you Nomad 3 owners running cranks with a 156q factor? I know 168q is what comes stock, but my buddy has a 156q crank he's thinking about throwing on the bike.

    Per the FAQ:

    What q-factor should I use for the cranks?
    For cranks with optional q-factor- always choose the wider version. For XX1, this is the 168mm version.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    I know what they recommend. I'm curious to hear from someone who's run the 156q to see if there are any issues like heel strike.
