    What about the White Industries Eno crank? Mine weighs in at 516g with a 34T chain ring.

    $180 ish from Mean Todd at Webcyclery.

    Yep

    The ENO's are up for consideration(your pics are v.good by the way!).... but a) wish they were black(all other components are) and b) Only WI rings will fit. .....suppose I could get 'em powder coated?

    Sorry, I am an idiot and I can not for the life of me figure out how to post pictures!

    (Admitting that you have a problem is always the most difficult step!)

    I've always thought Middleburns were great looking, unique (at least around here), and they always seem to get very good reviews. Silver arms so colors won't get scratched and a rainbow of spiders. However, I saw a previous post of yours about black ones, so see if they can mail to the US!

    A bevy of spiders and a non-spidered ring? Oo la la! I'm really digging them now.

    Damn, why didn't I think about Middleburn when I put together my parts list for my new ride? I like that Uno. That is one sweet setup.

    Here's one I made, Woodrow. Take it or leave it, makes no diff to me. Just killing a few minutes here at work. Yup, on a Sunday. Good thing the trails are a mess, or else I'd feel really bad right now

    Sorry that I "ripped off" your avitar. I liked it when I saw it on the old board and I started using it when the new board began. If you think about it, most of the avitars are hijacked.

    Black, light, strong...

    not as mainstream as the 4-bolt 104 Stylo...
    nashbar has them reduced from $180 to $50...
    use the money you'll save on a custom chainring/rockguard
    FedEx delivers my set tomorrow!

    Did that description of the Holzfeller actually say lightweight? Compared to what, a station wagon? It's probably good for BMX and maybe DH, but I'd go for the ENO for sure. Those are sweet!
