    Eagle on Jet 9 Carbon - 2016. which crankset?

    Hello
    decided to move to Eagle GX on my Jet 9 Carbon 2016. BB shall be PF 30 with 73mm length. Big doubt on which is the proper crankset to avoid chainline issues....
    What do you suggest?
    Most of the crankset I see online are for boost but since this frame is not boost I think those doesn't fit....or they fit but I'll have issues with the chain line...
    I'd like to limit bor budget reason to GX and not move to X or X0 versions.
    Thanks
    Paolo

    Should be able to buy a crank separately from the chainring and then just get a non-boosted chainring.

    Yes, says 11sp...but at this price point, you're getting a really good set of arms that work with the 30mm axle. Their bottom bracket is like 45 I think and you can get a non-boost chainring for likely under 50.
    If you're insistent on using a sram crank, go for DUB, as that's their new standard and will be what they're developing for going forward.

    You don't need new cranks and probably do not even need a new chain ring. 11 speed chain ring should work fine with a new 12 speed chain as long as your current 11 speed chain ring is in good shape.

    A 3mm offset chain ring is for Boost spacing and a 6mm is standard (142), non-Boost spacing.

    For a new chain ring, this should work fine on your existing Sram cranks.

    Hello
    actually I've an old 2 * 10 Sram X9 crankset, therefore I'd like to move to a GX native 1 * 12
