Hi WWs

As the title shows. Can a Sram rival gxp (stages) left arm be fitted to a red exogram gxp crank?

Found a good deal on a rival pwm for my friend riding trek frames (gxp/shimano only).

(He's a weight weenie and without spending too much money this seems like a good solution. Later we can change the chainrings to something lighter)

Thanks

Yes it can. Before Stages developed a carbon armed PM the only option for Sram users was the Rival GXP PM.

Did this myself to save some coin, and there's not a huge weight difference actually. Where there is a big difference is giving up bb3o and the carbon arm, then its something like 75g or more. The arm itself is only around a 25g penalty.
