    Aren't XC components suppsoed to be light?

    If you go to SRAMs website and compare the weights of some of thier Truvativ cranks, you can see that a Holzfeller Triple, which is supposed to be a heavy-duty downhill crank, weighs 840g.

    Meanwhile, thier Stylo Carbon XC race crankset weighs 848g.


    Um, am I missing something here? Why is the Stylo heavier?

    The weight of the Stylo XC Carbon includes the weight of the external bottom bracket. With the Holzfeller triple you need to add the weight of a bottom bracket.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
