    which FSA bb30?

    While waiting for my bank account to recover from paying off some bills, I'm still without a new bike. I saw the details on the new bb30 FSA cranks, and was wondering which would be better on a rize. The Gravity Light is only 44g more than the afterburner, but I'm not sure what the price tag difference would be. Has anyone actually seen these for sale? Also, would the gravity light be overkill on the more xc-oriented rize? I thought the added stiffness would be nice over a tradition xc chainset, but then again the rize is already super stiff, so maybe it wouldn't even be noticeable? Thoughts?

    I thought the only real difference between the Gravity Light and the Afterburner was the steel pedal inserts. Probably not much of a stiffness increase to be found.
