Hello all! I have a quick question.

I currently have a Quarq Riken coupled to GXP 172.5mm arms. I'm curious if I am able to take the Riken spider from my GXP arms and swap it over to SRAM S series BB30/PF30 arms. Has anyone tried this before?

I am fairly confident that yes, you can swap the spider between GXP and BB30 arms. You should probably double check with Quarq though.

Pretty sure its the same from what I looked at on mine, swapping is easy just make sure you clean off the old lock tight between the crank and spider and reapply. I think it takes 24hrs to cure the lock tight before riding if I remember right.

I have done this a few times. Works fine. Go for it. Just make sure that when you re-install on new S900 crankset that you torque Quarq mounting screws to proper spec. and that you use Quarq specified loctite product on the spider / crank interfaces.

If it's the newer quarq its not a problem I've done it a couple times never any problems or changes, I think calibration was a issue on the older ones like the s975
