    Crankset advice

    I've been reading various posts on this board in hopes of getting a better idea which crankset will be a good purchase for me. I'd like your advice on this topic. I ride a Blur LT Large, I'm 6'3" about 210 - 215 with gear. I ride mostly AM.
    I'm leaning towards XT or XTR 175's bc I've found a good deal (or so I think). Would you suggest either one or the other based on my weight and size? I'm worried that I might be a little to heavy for XTR's, but like the weight factor. Or do you have another suggestion all together?
    As well, would you consider moving up to 180's?
    Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't worry about the XTR just because of your weight, but I'd save the couple hundred bucks and go with the XT, rather than the 60-70 grams on the XTRs.
