    Alternate Crank for Fat Caad

    I have a hand me down Cannondale Fat Caad 1 frame. I need a BB & crank. BB30 and 120 width. So far I have not found any obvious alternatives to the Cannondale crank. Anybody have some experience and suggestions here?

    Thanks

    You could always keep the same spindle and find a set of Sram, Raceface, or Next cranks that both unscrew from their spindle. You would have to use thin plastic spacers to get the chainline and bearing preload, but it's doable since these brands share the same bb30 spline pattern on their spindles.

    Looks like that's going to be my path. Just need to throw the money down and see if it all clears the chain stays.
