    Specialized S-Works Cranks ?s

    I am considering this crank for my next build and am in need of some info:

    What is the Q factor of this crank?

    Is there a 74-110, double, 5 bolt spider available? I really prefer the 74-110 standard for ring choices (thanks Rotor!) although I could the Sram 38/24 pair, I would rather choose my own, standard bcd rings.

    Finally: what's the verdict on reliability. Considering all the Specialized road pros that have used it, I figure this crank must be pretty reliable these days.

    The Q factor on my 2011 MTB S-Works cranks is 167mm.
    Yes on the 110 five bolt spider Lightning Carbon Cranks
    I've got a season on mine & they've been perfect - no issues.One nice thing about these is they don't use a carbon spider, which is where alot of carbon cranks fail.These are spec on all S-Works MTB.I suggest running the rubber boots for the end of the cranks.

    for the info. 167 mm is not too bad, just 4 mm wider than Rotors, I can live with that. I will check the Lightning site for spiders, I did not see the 110/74 double last time I was there (just 110 only compact road).

    Lightning makes these for SpecEd right?

    I thought I remember a thread about this at one point. You may be able to check with them as they may offer more options.
