    I’d not come across these before, they look great. I’ve been looking for the next bike for my daughter, reckon one of these might fit the bill. Cheers!

    Nice bike! And a beautiful end to a rollercoaster of a thread. You shouldn’t have given the measurements though - what if you want to resell them?!

    Potentially interested in the wheels pending pics and rotor size. Are they QR or thru axel? Thanks

    Edit: oops missed the boost spacing, don’t think these’ll work for me!

    Hey thanks for this. How much were you thinking? No worries if you're not sure but any idea if this would work with a 10 speed setup?

    Due to crankset compatibility confusion on my part I've realised I can't use the cranks I was intending to on a planned build. So I'm after a SRAM 1x MTB crankset, specifically a crankset that is compatible with a 73mm bottom bracket shell and can be used with a 10 speed RD. Ideally GXP BB interface, but not a dealbreaker. Anyone have anything they're looking to sell? All the better if available for pickup in North/Central London!

    I'd also be happy to swap for my now redundant 1x SRAM Rival 1 road crankset + 50t 11spd X-SYNC chainring. It's been little used, though there's some heel rub on the crank arms because of the pedal straps I was using with these.

    Isn't the axle length the same, you are just spacing the BB on a 68mm shell?

    Yeah that's what I'd originally thought (hoped!) but the evidence does seem to be pointing to not being compatible. The SRAM Rival 1 product page suggests only 68mm BB compatibility but not sure if I'm reading it right. But also that page says the spindle diameter is 30mm but when I measure mine it's 24mm, so maybe I'm not looking at the right thing.

    you may as well get whatever BB suits the new cranks you want rather than trying to match to gxp.

    Yeah that makes total sense, thanks. I guess given the rest of what I've got is SRAM (X5 10spd derailleur and X9 shifter) I'll probably stick with SRAM cranks for the sake of harmony!

    Thanks for the input all, really helpful 👍

    I've got a spare 1x10 groupset which I'm trying to use as much as possible of on a frame I bought recently on here (Kona Sutra). I've quickly hit the limits of my knowledge when it comes to the cranks/BB. The old frame the groupset came off has a 68mm BB shell. The new frame has a 73mm BB shell. I assumed I'd need to sort out a new BB but realising the cranks (SRAM Rival) may also not be compatible as the spindle may not be long enough. The BB is GXP but I don't know any more detail than that (and there's no sign of any spacers from previous build). Does anyone have any words of wisdom on whether I'll be able to use either the BB or cranks on this build? Cheers!
