anybody got a weight for this XTR 970 chainset?

can the LH crank be removed with just an allen key (8mm?) or need a special tool?

yeah, that is why I want to replace mine by someting else - the tool is £ 35.

looking at fitting aeorzine c/s, listed from memory as 700 g (but come in a variety of pretty colours and no special tools required)
