I am trying to put a compact road crankset (octalink) on a G.F. Big Sur as part of a cross retro rebuild.
Has anyone successfully overcome the Q -factor with this type of application?
Anyone have a shimano octalink v.1, BB M952, 116 mm?
I don't know if this would work but I would like to give it a try.
It seems that I could get a longer bb by going isis or square taper, but all my boneyard cranksets are octalink compatable.
