Good deal on these on ebay: Link
Are these going to be too heavy for XC?
germs, needles, milk, death, snakes, mushrooms, heights, crowds, elevators
I think they are meant for downhill applications. So it will never be as light as the raceface XC offerings
I had them good for XC but not good for constant 10-15ft drops i snapped mine on a smooth landing
I was really impressed with them before they snapped they felt pretty stiff and very smooth but just one drop too many,Be well strong enought for XC.
I don't think she is likely to break anything, ever. Did you think the cranks will be too heavy for light trail riding?
