    Crank Question SLX or XT

    This would be for a 9 speed. What would be the significant difference between both these cranks other than the price obviously? How much more of an upgrade is one to the other?

    I'm going off of memory here so don't quote me but I believe it's around a 40g difference. From what I've read the new SLX is a serious bang for buck.

    Well, the main reason why I went XT was that:
    1) It came in black
    2) I can say that I've got a full XT set on my bike.

    Go for the SLX.
