    3 XC Chain Ring and Bolts Weight?

    I'm looking to use a set of 3 ring all mountain/cross-country cranks as a single ring DH set up on my Canfield One. Having a hard time comparing weights of all mountain crankset that are listed with no chain rings to cross-country style with all the rings. I only weigh 115 pounds and feel like I should be able to get away with some lightweight cranks without spending on carbon.

    for example: when I see Shimano XT listed at 850 g then I see Sram X0 listed at 750 g

    I know, that is just the lightest set of cranks that I could find listed and would like to avoid. I tried to put in a couple links but I had not made enough posts yet. I'm familiar with Raceface and it would be nice to stick to some 165 mm XC cranks from them.

    I found an old list on weight weenies and I'm guessing around 200 g for the three chain rings plus the bolts. Making a set of cross country cranks listed at 850 actually 650 when comparing to free ride/downhill cranks. Am I close?
