Cranks for S-Works Langster

All,

I'm fitting out a Specialized S-Works Langster for my daughter to race on the track. Anyone have any suggestions for a bb and crank setup that will have a pretty low q-factor and available in 165mm? Generally not a big deal for me, but she is really small and anything to keep her feet closer is important.

Thanks!

If narrow is something you really really want, I currently run a rotor aldhu track set-up - it is stupidly narrow (to the point that I regret it, cannot fit bigger than a 58t on a dolan df4 without major spacer surgery and tinkering), from a fair amount of 'what size chainring can you fit (nearly everyone I know is running df4s)' I don't know of anything narrower - granted its a fairly large amount to spend for a few mm on a kids bike, but ofc value is in the eye of the beholder!
