    Wozo q factor

    Hi all, read through a lot of threads and trying to see if there is anything I can do to narrow the q factor on the Wozo.

    It's a PF121 BB with a SRAM GX crankset, I recently measured the q-factor at 203mm. It's 177 rear spacing.

    I've heard I could possibly get narrower with a Race Face crankset, but looking here:

    https://www.raceface.com/media/Crank...chainlines.pdf

    It looks like the appropriate crankset would still be 203mm.

    Looking for some collective wisdom to let me know if I'm just out of luck here or if there's anything I can do to narrow the q factor?

    I'm having some pretty bad knee pain with this bike. Cockpit and general bike fit overall is almost identical to my YT Jeffsy 27, no knee problems there. I'm pretty sure I've narrowed it down to how far my feet are spaced apart.

    Thanks!

    I've read through that thread, and unless I've missed something, I haven't found info on how or if it's possible to narrow the q factor.

    IIRC the RF Turbines lowered the Q another few mm. Costly option tho.

    With my Aaffects (I think the 203 qfactor) there's like 5mm between crank and stay on driveside, and about 7mm on NDS.

    I like narrow Q-factors and whined about this some but tbh its feels pretty good to me these days. So, for me, it's a non-issue but if I did custom 27.5/3.8 frame, I'd probably try to spec a 83mm bb w/ the shortest stays possible at the expense of 4'' plus tires.
    Working to stomp out redundancy, I repeat, working to stomp out redundancy.
