Question about two Truvativ cranksets

okay well im in the market for a reasonably priced, but good quality crankset (arn't we all?) and anyways i came across two that catch my eyes because of their reviews. THe Truvativ Stylo SL and Stylo Team. There is a very small weight difference and color difference but beside that i see no physical difference. Is there really any difference at all in performance here? the SL is cheaper im just wondering why really. Oh and as for a bottom bracket has anybody had expirience with the Truvativ Ti ones>? are they even worth it?

I have a set of Truvativ Hassenfelt, but the insert for the pedels came out, so I had to send them to get fixed and have not gotten them back yet, 3 months later.

so I picked up a set of RaceFace that do not have any threaded inserts.

This may not be any help, I an not sure if the Stylo has threaded inserts of not, but if they do be careful with them, if you get them.

The Stylo cranks are quite low end on the Truvativ range I think, but they're still good, i had a set of Truvativ ISO flow cranks, and they were incredible for cheap cranks.

I wouldnt imagine there would be that much difference in the two products, because i think othe SL is one level lower than the team? SO maybe its jsut the wirght difference that separates them...

Nothing beats FSA. Take a look at what they have to offer as well.
