    Need some weight info - Ebones etc.

    Hello!

    I currently run a set of the race face carbon cranks with a 158g (?) FRM BB. I use a Rohloff Speed hub, so there is only one front ring (110 38T). The front ring came with the Rohloff and it reads only "NV" for a manufacturer - perhaps a Canadian brand since the hub was ordered from up north?

    I'm having trouble getting specific, consistent weight specs. I am thinking about going with the Ebones crank/BB combo and would like to know if I will save a considerable amount of weight? I can certainly switch to a new front ring, as I really do not know how much it weighs. Any issues with the Ebones set up and my '04 Ellsworth Id?

    So, how much will I save if I switch? Also, can I buy Ti spindals seperately for the Candy SL pedals or do I have to buy the whole pedal set?

    Thanks,

    Stephen

    You best look at http://weightweenies.starbike.com/listings.php
    They have over 8000 actual weights on the website. Also a very interesting forum.

    weight of my E-Bones W cranks

    I just got my new E-Bones W cranks from LightBikes this week. The first thing my buddy and I did was throw them on a gram scale, cause he's a freak! kidding. Anyway, the WHOLE setup w/ 3 Extralite rings and standard aluminum bolts weighed 626 grams. He's got a photo and I'll have him e-mail it to me but I'm going to post it along w/ a photo of the completed bike. I'm not sure of the compatibility with your frame but if it's the standard 73mm width, as is my Racer-X, you will have no problem and will not need to use the included spacer.

    Got mine too

    Very trick looking, appear to be extremely well made, simple but weird installation.

    493 grams, throwing some Boone ti rings on for an approximate total weight of 620 grams.
    The arms/axle are about 100 grams less than XTR and the bb cups are about 50 grams lighter. Next year I am going to do a 22/34 double ring with a DA 11-27 cassette for a superlight setup. This will also save weight because a shorter chain will be used.

    The new Blur XC will be 21lbs by next year with A Reba Team and Marta disc brakes.

    Also just got the Extralight post, very nice indeed!

    Hi Wayne, does your 620 g. weight include the BB parts / spindle? I assume it does because isn't the spindle connected or something? Sweet cranks a piccy w/ the boone rings would be great porn here.

    Yes, complete weight and I'll post a pic as soon as I get it together. I'm stoked, although it seems scary light.

    Here's a picture of my bike with my Extralite cranks - not quite as stiff compared to XTR but it seems stiff enough!! My only hassle is the leftside bolt keeps getting loose which makes the left pedalarm loose. I have giving it some blue loctite so now I hope it's okay :-)
