    Cranks + BB

    I have no clue about BB's and cranks, looking for a good deal $$$ on some Cranks+BB

    Must be light! Only require a single chainring (probably put a bashguard on later too)
    Going on a 907 (S) Aluminium frame. Also I'm pretty light so they are not going to get hammered.

    I found some pretty sweet prices at upgradecycle but wanted to check I have the right components for a 100mm BB shell.

    Is this BB suitable?

    RaceFace Team DH-Freeride

    With any of these Cranks?

    Race Face EVOLVE
    Race Face ATLAS
    Race Face RIDE XC

    or e13 combo

    BB e*thirteen XCX+ Bottom Bracket

    Cranks

    e*thirteen by The Hive XCX+
    this one states it's fatbike specifc

    How bout these?

    e*thirteen XCX+ Single Speed Crankt 170mm
    e*thirteen Triple XC Crankset
    e*thirteen by The Hive XCX+

    Anyone else running discounts, need to get my budget for build back on track FAST!

    devil is in the details. For the Raceface stuff, unless it is brand new, the Atlas was the only Crank to work with the fatbikes, and it was a specific version. With e.13 there are fatbike, and non, of the same crank.

    In either case it is important that you verify that the crankset is designed around a 100mm Bottom Bracket shell. That is the magic number for the BB and fatbikes.

    Depending on whom you purchase the parts from RF cranksets come with a BB as part of the pkg.
    ATLAS is 1 a few folks here use myself included. do some searching with bluesky, jensenUSA, universal cycles.

    I hope you got the ones for the !00mm bb shell. On the link you provided they are the ones listed as discontinued. If you ordered the ones for a smaller BB the spindle that is fixed to the crank arm will be the wrong length.

    I got the very last 170mm - 100mm BB shell (green). Will see what it looks like, might strip it down if I don't like the colour.
