    Fifteen G crankset

    Hi,
    Is anyone running these cranks on their Pivot.
    Looking at getting a set as they are light and look strong.

    Thanks,
    Gus

    They don't

    Emailed Pivot and they came back saying that they don't fit
    But then have found a lighter set anyway - Aerozine x12 come in at 748g with BB
    So might have to get a set of these, and not use the BB

    Hmmmm, that's too bad but when you get a cutting edge BB.... I'm not much help since I run DH cranks and think XT is real light

    Such as life

    But it does make you do more research on things.
    I just want to make my new Mach 5 as light as I can with a budget
    I like doing the 4hr up races so the lighter the better!
    Did my first ride on Tuesday and was very impressed, can't wait for tonight for my second

    Sweet man. Make sure you post pics of your bike here and on the Pivot bike pic thread.

    I looked at fitting Fifteen G cranks to my Mach 5 but once I saw them in the flesh I decided against them. They look great on the internet but are very plain in real life. I guess it doesn't matter though if they won't fit. The Aerozine cranks are not very good either. They are very flexy and I had the left arm fall off a few times, but supposedly the fitting method was fixed from the version I had. You can't go too far wrong with XTR if that fits the budget. If not, I'd just save for a bit longer.
