    If someone makes this spacer (Mattias...) I'm in for one, maybe two. Can we get anyone else on board? Or start a new thread here...?

    That would be fantastic David if you can get ahold of some cranks. Thanks very much.

    Lite but rigid crank recomendations

    Is the spacer in question in the middle of the cranks? the toothed piece?

    I have a manual lathe but that looks like quite a challenge. Does anyone have a drawing of the piece?

    Yes, its the 5mm toothed piece in the middle on the axle spindle. Skill testing venture as there's zero room for error.

    My Lightnings for a BB92 frame actually came with a similar spacer. However, Lightning uses different shaped teeth so it's not compatible with S-Works.

    New question here.

    Ok, before I try to hijack this thread (sorry!) I'll say that I've been riding the S-works cranks on my Niner Jet 9 RDO, which has PF30, for the past 6 months with no issues, and I absolutely love them. They're 480g including cranks, crank boots, Lightning reversible spider, and 22+32 Extralight chainrings. FYI, the granny chainring bolts hit my frame when the spider is in the double configuration, so I'm running just the 32 in the high double position currently, with BBG superlight on the outside. I'll hopefully be flipping the spider over to the triple side this weekend, and we'll see if everything fits.

    Now, I just picked up a road bike frame with a BB86, and I desperately want to use the less expensive S-works cranks (road or mtb version is fine with me) so I don't have to shell out the money for Lightnings. From what I'm hearing in this thread there's a remote possibility that the s-works mtb cranks might just be long enough, assuming I can get some 30mm ID bearings that will fit into the BB86 cups. If BB86 is 86.5mm wide and s-works mtb cranks have 90.7mm length spindes, does it follow that they might just fit?

    Rotor makes their UBB30 cranks that fit BB86 frames, so they must have 30mm ID/~40mm OD bearings they're using. I'll be calling Lighting later today to try to figure out if their BB86-compatible cranks have 24 or 30mm spindles. They mention that the bearings are provided, so I'm guessing they do this because they're 30mm ID and normal BB86 bearings are only 24mm ID. I don't have the frame in my possession just yet, so I can't size up the BB with my cranks yet.

    You might (probably) have the wrong spacers behind the granny ring. There's different length spacers for running the spider in double and triple configurations. Measure your's and call Lightning.

    I appreciate the tip, but I should've mentioned that I actually have both sets of spacers&bolts. I originally ordered the 12mm bolt/5mm spacers with the spider to run it as double and found that they hit the frame. I then ordered the 16mm bolts/9.1mm spacers for triple config, but lost the spider lockring tool before I could flip it. Now with a new lockring tool in hand, I just flipped the spider with the help of my mechanic's vise. I'll report back on whether everything fits. Also, I think user xc71 had a very similar problem with the chainring bolts, but he is using external BB cups, so he just filed them down enough for the bolts to fit.

    My issue wasn't the bolts hitting, but the inner most part of the 22T Extralite chain on the external outside diameter of the threaded cups. The cranks still turned but it was just slightly touching. I just removed a couple of thou off the cups.
