Force-22 BB30 cranks for 386

After seeing force and red cranks on the Jamis 2014 386bb  frames, I was expecting to see 386 compatible sram cranks, but after a few emails sram says, "SRAM will not make a 386 compatible crank."

My wife needs a 165mm crank, and force has that length for there bb30 crank, so I figured I'd tried it. 

The force crank is basically the same as the s950 cranks, with a removable spider, but the spider is made for the hidden bolt under the arm chainring.

Anyway, the cranks work fine for 386, they also work with the fsa 386 evo threaded bsa bb with a 68mm shell, or 73mm shell.

Just remove the preload adjustment and ds spacer, add a wavy washer on the ds for 386 or 68mm fsa 386...if you want it on a 73mm shell, there's another spacer on then nds to remove.
