    Crankset Hub Spacing Question

    So... I've built a bunch of fat bikes but they've all been 190mm bikes.

    I have an orange ano 170mm Fatback that I bought and then got sent to the basement before being completed when the 190 frames came out.
    It was the redheaded stepchild until now. My brother wants it.
    I'm giving him a shopping list of parts and besides the Surly OD, which other cranksets are for 170 hub spacing? Any of the Raceface?

    Yes.

    You're turning black metallic.

    Yes absolutely, I have the Turbine EXI for 170 rear. If you go cinch you just need to get the right spindle.

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.
