    Will This Crank Fit My Borealis?

    After a whole lot of searching for the right answer, I've had to start a new post to ask this question, and go and make myself look like a newb. In reality I've managed to ride bikes for 20 years and never had to figure out anything to do with bottom brackets, so now I find myself stumped at the following question...

    Will a SRAM XX1 168Q GXP fit my Borealis Yampa?

    I stumbled upon an XX1 groupset at a price too low to pass up. However, with my ignorance I just blindly assumed it would fit either one of my bikes, my 2012 Trek Superfly 100 Elite or my Yampa. Since I rode my new singlespeed all summer, I never bothered to find out if it would fit my Superfly. Now that winter is right around the corner, I feel like I should attempt to put the XX1 to use.

    So, will it fit?

    no.
    That is a standard mtb crank. You might notice that fatbikes are a little wider....maybe even fatter.

    Damn. I have the rest of the group that will still work, so maybe I'll just get a different crank. Thanks for the reply.
