    Which q factor XX1 crank?

    I have a Salsa Moto Rapido frame and I want to use full XX1. I need 175mm arms with a GXP bottom bracket but what q factor do I want? It it rider preference? Will both clear the frame? Is there information about this somewhere? My bb is 68mm.

    Good luck with finding any valuable info on that. I just went with the 168q factor for my 2013 Specialized Epic Marathon and it fits fine, not sure there would have been sufficient space for the 156q. My dealer pulled out the Sram book and it says the 156q fits limited bike models, so I went with the safe bet in the 168q. I absolutely love the XX1 set up, it is extremely quiet and I never find myself searching for more or less gears.
