    Crank arms with offset

    I'm putting a BBS02B on a 27.5 Plus bike (2.8" tyres) and I don't think the standard cranks are going to give enough clearance from the chainstay..the right might be ok but I doubt the left will be. Are there any after market crank arms that have an offset to get around this problem?

    The expensive, but elegant solution is the Lekkie buzz bar, available offset/straight, black/silver and 160/170mm:

    There are also somewhat hard to find spindle extenders:

      Thanks for that info...much appreciated. I did a bit of searching after my post and found the following which looks to be a relatively cheap solution... probably not as god as the Lekkie but should do as this bike is for more gentle trail riding.

        That's good! Here's another source, in case that one doesn't work out.

          Does that mean it won't fit, or isn't as good?? There seems to be some satisfied feedback. Confused!

            It does come as a pair as I understand it... a left and right. Is that what you meant.... can't mix a diamond and square??

              Sorry about that - I deleted my post, thinking that you only needed the left side and that the Aliexpress one was "square" - the first image that comes up in that ad is for a "square" 175mm crank arm. As you can imagine, a square crank arm can't be used with a diamond crank arm on the other side.

              Then I saw that they also offered a 170mm diamond ... oops.

                No worries. I had already ordered the 175mm offset pair and then panicked when I saw your first post :) I did also think that it was just one crank arm at first but then every photo has a pair. I think their use of $x /piece is a little confusing... should be /pair or /set ... but I think that is just the generic term that's used on the site. Cheers.
