    New question here. Noir Crankset for a bigger guy?

    I am 215 lbs and want to run a Noir Crankset on my Pivot mach 5. I ride it ruff but do not do any drops bigger then a few feet. Will the Noir be a good crankset for me to run? Any big boys have experience with these?

    Not an expert, but I think you'd be OK. Cranksets, even the light ones need to be overbuilt the most and I do not think they post a weight limit. An email to Sram will get you a definitive answer.

    I'm around 200 and run one.

    I can't be much help, though, since I only installed it this spring. The experiment is ongoing, but positive thus far.

    LOL fully loaded I was 275 at one point. It's a demo bike that got run hard for a season, then pounded by me for another. Did a race last Sat & still ride nearly every day & it's still flawless.

    Noir cranks are way overbuilt, which is why they aren't all that light. I am 215 and have no worries about mine.
