    So which XX1 crankset for a Nomad C?

    Since Shimano is taking ages to come up with a XX1 beater i'm entertaining the idea of, in a not so near future , getting a XX1 for my NomadC
    I was just checking the cranksets and i realized there are a lot of options to choose from and i'm kind of confused
    Besides the arms lengths and the chainring tooths (which i understand) i see there are Q-Factors (156mm or 168mm) and BB30 or GPX???
    Of these (Q-Factor and BB30 or GPX) which are recommended for a Nomad C?
    TIA

    From their FAQ it says

    What size bottom bracket do I need?

    The Nomad uses a 73mm threaded bb shell, so make sure you always get something compatible with that. Pretty much any external bearing crankset will work. If using XX or XX1, use the wider q-factor spec (166 or 168mm respectively)


    I looked it up last week. http://www.santacruzbicycles.com/nomad/faq.php

    Good job!

    Perfect. Thanks guys!
    In the meantime i was searching and was realizing it should be GPX, as BB30 is a pressfit BB. (is this right?)
