    Fat Bike Crankset Adapted to Boost 29er?

    Just getting back into MTBs after a long absence. Trying to come to grips with all the new specs and componentry changes. I just got a Lynskey Sequel 29er frame, as they were having a real sweet deal on them. Trying to kit it out the way I like it. (but within a budget) I really like 172.5 cranks. It's always the length I've done best with. I also want to run a 1x drivetrain. Most of the 172.5 cranksets out there are either road spiders or cyclocross. No good for 1x. I did find some 172.5 cranksets for Fat Bikes, but they come with a 100mm BB and spindle. Sorry if I sound like a rube, but I have been away from the scene since 2000. Everything has changed. Can I make this crankset work with the Sequel 29's 73mm BSA BB? The frame has Boost spacing, it appears, 12 x 148? The cranks in question are these: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-172-5mm-....c100010.m2109

    No that crankset/spindle length will not work for that frame. Just go with a 170mm if you must and in a few days and you won't know the difference.
