Can you drop a ATB Crank on a Cross Check Frame or does it need a Road Crank... I have A cross check with only a double on it and I want to put a triple on it.
Yes, you can put pretty much any crank on it. ATB, touring, road or SS. If you go to a triple you might have to get a wider bottom bracket though, if your changing it youself then make sure you find out the correct width.

With ATB cranks, I found I had to use a shorter bottom bracket then even a double 105.
