    Crank recommendations

    Hello, just bought a lapierre xr 529 ei. Got a great deal on end of the year closeout. Trying to lighten it up a little. Added Stans Crest wheels, and converted tires to tubless. ALso added Carbon seatpost, bars and swapped out cassette. Got it down to 25lbs. I need a good recommendation for a replacement crank. It has Sram 2x10 crank with a Gxp pressfit Bottom Bracket. It weighs 860 grams without BB. I get really confused on these BB, and which crank will work with what? I have a 2x10 with a 11-36 cassette and love the gear ratios. Thanks

    You can lighten things up going 1x with a race face next and shimano 11 speed. Looks like you have a pressfit system. Is Carbon wheelset out of the question? I say this because the benefit of going carbon far outweighs lightening up your crank by a few grams.

    Carbon wheelset was out of my budget. This is where I get confused if a 1X race face next crank will work. I have read that it will not with a pressfit GXP BB?

    Gxp no. You'll need a pf30 system. You know the next crank is 400 ish. You can get light bicycle rims for 180 each.

    If you don't mind used there are some pretty great deals on XX cranks out there.
