according to their site, the clavicula M3 mtb is 410g for the 12s boost with 34T chainring. Here's the xcx weights

what other cranksets have you considered that's a bit more affordable?

At this point, there are no alternatives I've found to be sufficiently appealing. It's either incolors or THMs, but the THMs break both the bank, and the "budget" theme of this build. The Campy SR cranks look great and i'm not sacrificing it for anything under a 200g+ weight savings.

When it comes to options, I guess the closest alternative would be a 3T torno crank with a custom-made chainring (330g + ~80g)

Thanks for the info on skypivot. I saw one on ebay a few weeks ago but it got snatched up pretty quick. I'll pass on THM for now. I'll probably get more bang for my buck spending $1200 towards a carbon wheelset.


Have a look at the carbon Aerozine Taiwan cranks.

These are 25g heavier (365g) than RED eTap AXS DUB (340g) and almost twice the price (465USD vs 233EUR). Even EC90 SL are marginally lighter (351g) and cheaper (354EUR).

What AE saddle/seatpost did you use? My set weighed like 250g IIRC. I've been meaning to cut my seatpost too

Here is the link to the seatpost if the link is broken, google "Elita One carbon seatpost aliexpress" and you'll find it.

Here's the link to the saddle too :beerchug:

compared to regular spokes they are a pain to build, mainly when it comes to lacing because of jow hard you need to pull to get the threads to bite. Length depends on rim and hub obvioisly, i think mine were 283 but i dont remember
