    why two accounts, jake? and those are pretty sexy cranks. i thought my polished stylos were nice... even the rings on that noir look awesome. i love sram. i would like to see an OCT stylo and make it close to xtr weight. that would rock my socks.

    My "Pay Here" account went bonkers in the middle of uploading some PICs last week. I couldn't do diddly squat so I open up a new account in order to communicate with the mods and report the loss of all my user options. It turns out it only happen to the few peeps that were trying to post or upload at that hour of the morning when they had a short software melt down My LUCK So I closed the old one and started up all brand new..

    Yeah those are some sweet cranks. I'm thinking on changing out the rings to the Extralite Octaramps I'm using on the RF's so I can get the weight down closer to 765g or so. The RF's are at 743g (Evolve XC ISIS+KCNC ti BB+alm hardware) Decisions-decisions

    Happy New Year Bro

    The pulley wheels are an old set of Carmichael's that I was going to put on my XT-750 but never got around too. After going SRAM, I'd forgot all about them. When I ran accross them a few months ago my buddy offered to CMC them to work with my XO. It worked, he's helped me tune a lot of parts

    I'll post up PIC's of the NOIR's when i get them installed. I love BIKE PORN

    extralite chainrings

    Hey Jake,
    I'm using a truvativ stylo sl crankset and was curious about how much lighter the extralite chainrings would be compared to the stock ones. Are they carried by say QBP or are they some special order parts, oh yeah and how much do they cost?
    Thanks for your help,
    Brien.

    Hi Brien,
    The only place in the USA that I've ever found them was at (click>) FairWheel...Their all sold out right now..Send them an e-mail and check when they might be getting some more..The cost was around $160 with S/H

    TruVativ rings are heavy, so the weight loss should be 50+grams..I also changed out the crank bolts to alloy self-extracting and the ring bolts to SRP's for a loss of about 30 grams..

    has anybody already measured the q-factor (outer crank distance) of the noir and stylo crank? I'm looking for a crank with low q-factor!

    Just started riding them and all I can say so far is they shift very precise and look even better. It took some extra machining to get these on my Maverick.

    Just might be time finally to make the switch..But its hard to give up 743g for 780g

    why 743g ?
    it was with 810g of origin and I passed it to 780g

    My 04' RF Evolve XC ISIS crank arms + ExtraLite C-ring + KCNC ISIS BB (ti spindle/carbon shell) +
    Aluminum Fasteners = 743 grams..

    With that said, its hard for me to put my EL rings on my NOIR's and gain 37 grams..

    So you see my dilemma..
