    Noir Crankset at Jenson for $229

    Truvativ Noir XC 1.1 Crankset > Components > Drivetrain > Cranksets | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    It's "OE" item, but with its price tag, it's hell of a bargain.

    I'm really good looking.

    Why doesn't it show the number of teeth? Or does it not come with a chainring?

    Hmm, carbon wrapped AL. Is that why it's generally said that the Stylo OCT is the better bang for the buck buy in SRAM's mid range, for stiffness/weight, and that Noir isn't worth the money?

    Another site I checked shows it as having 32 teeth. Jenson has only the 170mm crank arm size. That price does seem very good.

    For people who are looking for that mid ground between cheap, strong, and light, Stylo would be ideal and Noir would be just little bit lighter for a lot more money. But for weight weenies who want stronger carbon cranks, I can see how it can be appealing.

    I believe all Noir 1.1 comes with 32 teeth.

    Especially when you consider Noir 1.1 cranks don't come with bottom bracket, the initial price would be around $500. But this one comes with bottom bracket.

    I've been quite happy with Stylo 3.3 GPX's... picked up a spare set of 175's on closeout for $50 last year My first set of them (circa 2009) are now on my girlfriend's sub-22 lb. carbon hard tail. BB still spins dreamy & hushed up like new.

    The Stylo is a better deal, but the Noir is noticeably stiffer, and much cooler looking (I don't run a Noir any more, but had one, and have a Stylo on the spare bike).
