comment Swapping cranks, but the new crank is wider, how do I compensate for this?
Yes, @Kibbee. It's a Crosscheck. Not nearly as big as the Pugsley but still wide. Probably the narrowest of their FFF's. I have 35mm's on it now and that's as big as it'll go (with fenders) I think.

I agree. Also watch out for spacing problems between the crank arms and the chainstays. A minimum of 5mm is required (more is better). Otherwise, you risk them touching when the frame is under a heavy load, like while climbing. I had problems with a Surly and VO crankset combination that no BB could undo.
