    2012 XT and SLX cranks weighed w/o rings

    Just in case you were wondering which to use for a new SS build. The XT is the double version.

    Hu, interesting. Thanks for the pic, are XT cranks still made in Japan?

    Wow, could they make the XT's any uglier?

    Thanks. That is one rather expensive gram there.

    That's with the BB, but no CRs right ? I hope so. Any 90s LX or XT triple crank set will weigh in at 675 or so. But you gotta add 280 for the BB (or 150 if you run Ti). I seem to remember Specialized strong arms weighing sub 500 with no CRs.

    And once again they have raised middle section for heels to rub off paint and poke a hole like 760 and 960. 770 had a recessed middle section to avoid this problem so it's a return to the old problem?

    Easily. They could use the same graphics and finish as the SLX.

    Neither is a very pretty crankset. In terms of styling, the nod's going to Sram cranks these days imo.

    When was the last time you calibrated your balance?

    SLX or XT makes a pretty good single speed crankset. I bought XT for the color, but sold the chainrings on ebay for 55.
    Ribble has SLX for 100.50 shipped
    Shimano SLX M675 10 Speed Double Chainset including Bottom Bracket, Chainsets, CHAINSETS MTB
    Or 149.40 for XT
