    Technical question- SRAM xo crank with wolf tooth direct mount

    Hi! In the process of swapping my 2x xo crank spindle and chainrings by a 28 direct mount gxp wolftooth chainring. There's a thin washer (spacer??) in-between the spindle and the seal. Do I need to reinstall it when the spindle is remove and replace by the direct mount chainring?

    I'll try without the spacer/washer… If somebody has a idea/opinion about this please share it with me.

    Pic please,

    I dont recall any washer when I pulled off the 2x spider from my X0 cranks. Simply removed the three securing bolts, removed the spider, dropped on the wolftooth direct mount, re-attached three securing bolts, and then re-assembled the crank the same way it was.

    Thanks. I tried it without the metal spacer and everything is working fine. My bike (Large spider comp) is down to 28 pounds with pedals, fox 140 and Ardent 2,4 front and rear. Not bad! I still need to install my dropper so maybe will settle around 29 pounds. Now I will trail-test 1x10 and see if I really need that wolf tooth 40 that I just received… But I already know I will!

    Spacer/washer?

    yeah I would put it back in there...

    some good discussion here: http://forums.mtbr.com/29er-bikes/su...-712135-2.html

    I think that wave washer provides the preload for your bearings. You could also call up Intense and see what they think.

    it should be there - the wolftooth ring will not change the spacing of the crankset

    I think you're right… Looking on SRAM site, that "wave-washer" (it's how they call it) is part of the bb. So I will put it back. Thanks
