Q-factor and crankset question

I'm wondering if someone can recommend a good MTB crankset with a decently narrow Q-factor (distance between pedals). I just bought a Kona, and it comes with the RaceFace Ride XC. Their tech told me the Q-factor is 167mm and the weight is 860 grams. It feels wide and my knees don't feel aligned properly. I guess I'm used to a narrow road crank. Thanks.

Yes, if you want a more narrower of a Q factor go with the new Shimano holllowtech set up with the outboard bearings.
