    Think ive ordered wrong crank size!?

    hi guys, i've just ordered the Turbine Crankset (link below) my frame BB is 100mm & my rear spacing is 197.

    Ive ordered the 100mm / 175 ..but should i have ordered the 190 / 175!?

    I ordered the 100mm / 175 as i thought the 100mm refers to the BB & the 175 refers to crank arm length?

    ...i'm confused!?

    heres the options etc: https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Race-Face-T...ely_117458.htm

    With the Turbine, you can swap the spindle readily for any length to accommodate most BB shells.

    Rear spaced 190/197 requires Bti part # RF-2966.

    Spindle length is 189.5mm for 190/197 compatibility.

    Yes, that is confusing.

    It should have said 170/175 (170mm wide rear hub/175mm crank length).

    You do need the 190/175 set.

    Just send them back and re-order

    It depends on your frame.
    Plenty of 197 frames will take the 170 spaced cranks. I have a Echo and a Farley that both work fine this way.
    But I have a RSD Mayor that need the 197 spindle

    Like the mayor said, some frames work with either. I have a carbon Corvus frame with 197 rear spacing. Most I know run the spindle for the 177 width rear hubs, and it works just fine, giving a narrower Q factor. If you have knee issues this might be a concern. For me, the wider prevents any heel contact with stays since I use size 50 winter boots.
