Want to get new cranks,have a 2015 Norco Ryde,has a 28T chainring,want to go a 30T or 32T chainring/cranks,not sure if can go bigger than a 28T,because of frame profile,if can what cranks? X0's ?
If gear ratio is the issue, you could just go with a 13T freewheel in the back. The website is unclear if it's a freewheel hub or a cassette hub. It says "CASSETTE BMX 14T FW"

That's kinda lame they put 28/14. Typical of an MTB company with xc riders in charge.
In the singlespeed xc world, 2:1 ratio (or 52 gear inches) is an often-quoted standard.
In the BMX/mtb-DJ world, 52 is considered too spinny. 55-ish gear inches (or even a little stouter) is standard. 25/9 on 20" wheels is 55.5 gear inches. 28/13 X 26" = 56 gear inches.
