    Help with my Pugsley.

    Need suggestions for a single ring crankset for my 2014 Pugsley. Can I use any aftermarket crankset or are there only certain ones I can use because of the BB? I'd prefer not to be able to use the stock BB.

    I originally wanted to use a crankset with 3 chainrings (Shimano SLX M660) but I have been told that it won't fit/the spindle isn't long enough.

    I'm lost and Surly Pugsley dumb. Help.

    Just take off the rings you don't want/need. Then you have a single ring crankset. Why spend the money?

    You need a 100mm bottom bracket and compatible crankset. The crank spindle needs to be longer to accommodate the wider bottom bracket shell, which is why Shimano cranks don't work. There are tons of options now. SRAM, E13, Race Face, FSA all make cranks compatible with the Pugsley.

    Ultraspontane is correct, too, though - you don't need a new crankset to go down to single chainring, but you might need single ring chainring bolts or you could replace the big ring with a bash guard.

    Both my Pugsley and Troll are set up 1x10 using a triple crank. Buy some of these and save some time and $$$ Set of 5 Chainring Bolts+Nuts for 1X ? wolftoothcomponents.com
