Hello guys!


I currently have a Deor hollowtech crankset (not octalink). and i wanted to know how much weight will be reduced by raplacing it to a XT 04 HollowTech II.
or maybe an XTR 02' will be ligter? (03',04' is too expensive for me)

by the way...
does anyone here ride with the XT 04' crank? does it have any disadventeges?



sorry if my english is not 100%... (:

the new xt crank will be lighter than 02' and before sets of xtr but i like xtr chainrings as they generally wear better and the xt has outboard bearings that wear out a bit faster than a regular bottom bracket. i would go for xtr 02' or older.

Really?
I thoght that the outboard bearings was ment to give more service life to the crank...
do you know how much will it cost to raplace the bearing when they will wear?

I cant tell you much about the weight of the XT crnaks, it's around 880grams for the Cranks, and intergrated BB from memory...

They are stiff thats for sure, there is a nice solid feeling too them compaired to the older model shimano cranks; one of which I snapped a spider off the splines on the Right hand crankarm. The new XT's seem to wear pretty well,no bearing troubles; dispite their first ride being an epic mud fest.

I have the new XT, and i hope it doesn't wear out too fast, but the bearing unit is cheap and easy to replace if it does. plan on $35 US.
btw, put the left crank bolt (not the two binder bolts) on GENTLY to preserve bearing life

I run '03 XT crankset.

It has done 6k road miles and approx 500 off road miles. Over 10 months. I'm no mechanic and so, I've not stripped it down and greased bearings etc.

No problems.

Looking at the stats
XT '03 and '03 XT BB = 868g
XT '04 Integrated Crankset and BB = 860g

I got a complete XT crankset and BB for only £80 UK (took a lot of hunting). Bought it in the Summer of 2003.

Can you justify the extra cost for '04 XT Vs '03?
Cost is likely to be an additional 20%
