I am looking for recommendations on BB30 cranks with 2 chainrings. I want something that will be lighter than the XX Crankset and still be durable. I would not want it to be much more expensive than XX crank either, because that is my number one option right now. I don't want anything too exotic, but if it is light and not too expensive, I will go for it.

Ive been having really good luck with the specialized cranks. I think they are within 50 bucks of the XX cranks.

Thank you for the input, I know the weight of the hollowgram (very light) and the fsa. Anyone know the weight of the specialized (including bb and rings), It isn't on their site and they seem to sell it in parts.

The hollowgram seems to be the best option, but the specialized looks pretty cool.

on the specialized crank, you can also go with the lightning xx spider and save a good chunk of weight

It's the SiSL. No need to discuss further.

Hollow grams are stiff and light.
Is ease of maintenance a concern?
Because in my experience the hollow gram cranks need lots of maintenance. Mine are always creaking for one reason or another.
