    Anyone have an opinion on these cranks or know their weight? Is the axle Shimano or Sram BB compatible? I need carbon triple cranks and there's not a lot of options. I missed an auction for K-Force Lights and this seems similar.

    The crank arms are about an ounce heavier than XO carbon cranks, but otherwise they are very similar. The spider is removable and has the same spline pattern as SRAM and TRUVATIV. The spindle uses a SRAM/GXP bottom bracket.
    These were made for mountain bikes in a couple of different spindle lengths. One will only fit 68mm shells, so check that this will work with 73mm shells if your frame is that size.

    Thabks for the info. This is all good news! I was about to drop $285 on XO just for the removable spider. I'm running 3x8 now but may go 2x in the future. That weight probably makes it the same as the oldish K-Force light I was gonna get but with the removable spider. I'm paying $130 shipped. The frame's a 68mm.
