    165 mm new crank for Trek Fuel EX 2018 9.8 - DUB not fitting

    Hello,

    I bought a Trek Fuel EX 9.8 2018 last year with SRAM Descendant 7k Eagle, direct mount 175mm.

    I just ordered the same model but 165mm length but it doesn't fit. I think the difference is the DUB new structure.

    Can somebody confirm if I can put a adapter or need the exchange the DUB model with a older one I suppose that will fit ?

    Thanks
    Mart

    You need to replace the bottom bracket with a pressed fit Dub BB. Or find a set of 165nn GXP cranks which may be hard to do since they were discontinued two years ago.
    Change begins by doing something different.

    Yes that one will do. You are also going to need a bearing press to install it. You may be able to find the drifts only and use some allthread, washers and nuts to install it to save some money. That or take it to the lbs to have them install it.
