    XX Crank Install Question

    I just installed an XX GXP crank and the spindle shows on the drive side (there is a gap between the BB and the actual crank body). Maybe I'm just panicking, since I have a race tomorrow, but is this normal? Should it be snug against the BB seal?

    The non-drive side bolt is as tight as I can get it, the gap to the chain stays is the same on both sides and I can't push the drive side in any farther, so I think I'm all set.

    Could someone just confirm?

    It's normal. The gap is about 3mm. The crankset won't move side to side as the non-drive bearing is sandwiched between the non-drive crankarm and a lip on the spindle. The only reason there wouldn't be a gap is if you were using an e-type front derailleur or a bottom bracket mounted chainguide. Enjoy your race...best front shifting ever!
