    xx1 and x0 spider?

    I have seen you can purchase x0 and x9 spiders seperately, I was wondering if these can b installed on a xx1 crankset instead of the single ring ?

    you'd be better off calling sram. not too many people experiment with this sort of thing, so I don't know about getting a timely answer.

    Wow, how random is this? I was wondering the same thing last night when I was taking off my XX1 crank to install an MRP skid plate. Well, I was wondering the same thing but in reverse. In case I destroyed my XX1 crank, could I install the XX1 spider onto the X.0 crank? The simple answer to your question is "Yes", but I also learned some more interesting information. I even took some pictures last night for my own amusement. I had no idea I'd be posting them today to help others.

    BTW, the XX1 and X.0 crank are EXACTLY the same crank. They even weigh the same amount. The only thing different is the paint job, no joke. I was surprised to say the least. I didn't put the X.0 spider onto the XX1 crank, but I guarantee you that it will work. I easily put the XX1 spider on the X.0 crank as you can see in the picture. The 'locking' pattern with the 3 torx screws on the backside of the drive side crank are exactly the same.

    The only thing is, with 2x10 X0 cranks going for $200 used, you'll come out ahead selling off the X0 and buying an XX1 than you will buying the spider/gear for XX1 separately. I was thinking the exact same thing you were, but decided to sell off the X0 because of the price differences.

    Cheers Laterilus, suspected that might be the case.

    And would it be correct to assume that the spider on the X7(s1400), X9 and X0 have all the same interface?

    One thing not been mentioned is that you can't put a gxp spider on a bb30 crank and vice versa or rather you can but the chainline will be wrong, hope this helps anyone from making an expensive mistake ordering anything

    Re: xx1 and x0 spider?

    Vert1, glad I could help. I do not know about the X7 or X9. I do have some friends coming to town in about 1 month. They have the SRAM S1250 from the Specialized Epic carbon Comp. It also uses a BB30 crank. I bet that is the same crank as a X9 or X7 like the SRAM 2200 carbon crank on Specialized bikes is the same thing as a X.0. I also agree with the previous statement between BB30 and GXP. Got to keep them separate due to chain line. It's pretty annoying. Too bad every 3rd party manufacturer only makes chain rings and spiders for the GXP cranks. I can't find anyone that does for BB30.

    Was messing around with my SRAM spiders and thought I would share my experiences.

    I have the X9 3x10 and XX1 cranks, both GXP. The XX1 spider does fit on the X9 crank. The X9 3x10 spider does NOT fit on the XX1 crank because the carbon arm is wider than the aluminum and it interferes with part of the spider. I don't know if a 2x10 spider would fit or not, as I don't have one.

    WolfTooth Components has been features in several industry news articles recently. They're making 1x11 chainrings that will be compatible with the 120mm spider.

    Has anyone tried using a 2x10 spider + rings with a Q156 XX1 crank? Wondering if the lower q-factor arms affects chainring or spider clearance. Would be using 26-38/39t chainrings.

    Yes they fit fine, Q factor doesn't matter.
