This is not the same as a Truvativ crank unlike what many think, the SRAM Froce crank is a compeltely new crank.
The difference between the Truvativ Rouleur Carbon crank and the new SRAM Force crank is actually very easy to tell because the Truvativ Rouleur Carbon has carbon crankarms with an alloy spider.
SRAM Force on the other hand has a one peice right crankarm+spider in carbon.
That's the reason why the new SRM crankset is based on Truvativ Rouleur Carbon and not SRAM Force, becuse it's easier to just replace the alloy spider with the SRM unit, which you can't do with SRAM Force.

Truvativ Rouleur Carbon is also available with black spider, but unlike SRAM Force it's still an alloy spider.

Again, no complaints here. I have about 100 miles on the crankset now & it has performed marvelously so far. Great shifting, tight smooth spinning.

SRAM/Truvativ has now updated their website for 2007.
The Truvativ Rouleur Carbon crankset has now disappered annd has been replaced with the new Truvativ Noir Road with full carbon spider.
I think Noir Road is almost the same crankset as SRAM Froce.
Caimed weight is < 780 grams including BB.

Very nice ride you got there!
about the stickers: let them talk!!


about the force crankset:
why do the tell us on the site it weights 665gr

when can you tell that the weight is incl. or excl. chainrings

I´m looking for a new crankset for a good price but are confused with all these weights.

I Expect that the new fsa set is allso without chainrings (k-force light)
