I have a Cube Hyde SL 2012

that comes with a very good Deore XT 42X26T crankset.

I'm finding though that I need a bigger chainring and came across the Shimano Deore XT Trekking Triple crankset with 48/36/26T that seems to fit the bill of my needs and requires the least amount of changes to other parts on my bike.

The only question is does anyone know if this will fit the bike, more specifically will there be any clearance issue with the chainstay as I can't find information online about the dimensions of this crankset and my LBS doesn't seem to have a clue (it's an Evans unfortunately).

Thanks
