Shopping for a 30mm fat bike crankset

So my bike has a PF30 100mm BB and 190mm cranks with a 36-22 chainring combo similar to the cranks found on the Specialized Fatboys of previous years. I donít plan on going 1x anytime soon but my cranks are 170mm and after trying cranks that are 175mm I think I would like to get longer cranks.

I donít know who makes a 2x 190mm spaced fat bike crank with a 30mm spindle or if there are adapters for 24mm spindles with the appropriate spacing for using 190mm wide cranks with a 100mm PF30 BB.

This all seems confusing but if anyone could help Iíd appreciate it.

Not sure I’ve only used/seen 24mm spindles. My MTB has a FSA 19mm spindle but I replaced it with a SRAM X7 that is a 24mm. Hopefully someone with more experience with fatbikes can help you out.

If you can get the same brand as your old cranks you'll have a better chance that it will work with your existing bottom bracket. Failing that, Raceface makes several 30mm spindled crank models in about any gear/bottom bracket shell width combo you can imagine.
