I'm currently using the stock Deore 445 Hollowtech Octalink crankset that came with my bike. I'm wondering what performance benefits are there to upgrading to XT 752 Octalink besides lighter weight? I've heard XT crankarms are stiffer so does that mean I'll climb faster / easier? I know XT alloy rings don't last as long as Deore steel rings...
I'm slowly upgrading everything to XT. I've already got XT shifters and derailleurs, large difference I've noticed in shifting performance already. My cassette and crankset are Deore while the chain is SRAM PC59. I'm thinking what's more beneficial, upgrade crankset or upgrade cassette / chain?
