I have a 2011 Diamondback Response MTB. I have put a lot of mods into the bike, only things that are left stock are the Suntour XCT V2 cranks and matching XCT V2 fork. The crankset weighs about 1100g, and the fork 2600g....THATS HEAVY! I plan to change the fork with a fox air fork of some sort...should drop about 2 1/2lb or so there and then change the Crankset to a Sugino Impel Triple. The sugino crank is this one... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sugino-Impel...item589c4cb037.
Does anyone have any experience with this crankset? Its 690g which is way lighter than the Suntour thats on the bike right now. Just want to hear from people who have used the Sugino Cranks to see if they can stand up to some abuse. Thanks!
