Eastern sucks. My friends titanium cranks broke in a week. Get a fit or one of the new freebirds if you want a lightweight bike.

Dude, get the 540, it has Hi-Ten, so it'll be super light.

Edit: I also like how it doesnt say what rims are on these bikes....

Better question: how many pairs have they actually sold? Even the biggest of BikeGuide's non-riding weight weenies probably couldn't justify the cost of those cranks.
