Hi WW,
I would like to thankyou all for my answering my numerous questions about power meters and BB standards over the last few months.

In the end I went with a Quarq Dzero Carbon with Quarq not Sram red graphics.

For those interested here are some weights:
- Sram Red 110BCD 11sp 52T Blast Black chainring 145g
- Sram Red 110BCD 11sp 36T chainring 42g
- Dzero Non-Hidden Bolt bolts 23g
- Left arm w/ factory grease 170mm 170g
- Right arm, spider, spindle 170mm 110mm BCD 391g
- 2 pedal washers 0g

Coming from an Ultegra 6800 172.5mm crankset with 52-36 rings
- Left arm 201g
- Cap + rubber ring 5g
- Right arm + chainrings 499g

Overall there was an increase in weight (assuming bottom brackets weighed the same) but im happy with having power.

Nice :thumbup:

For reference comparison (170mm cranks, 110BCD, without chainrings, BB & spacers (if necessary):
* P2M NG with FSA KForce Light cranks is 571g (the lightest "universal" crank based PM (fits almost every BB) they've got).
* P2M Type S FSA KForce Light+ is 588g
* P2M Type S Rotor 3D+ is 606g
* P2M Type S Cannondale SISL2 172.5mm is 498g

So with those weights you listed, a dzero gxp is lighter than the P2M NG Kforce light.

That's pretty cool that only the SiSl2 is lighter because from my knowledge that is a significantly more expensive crankset.
I guess the little bits that add up would be the weight of different brand chainrings, spacers, BB's

SiSL2 and / or Specialized S works both would be excellent and light choices, but you need a "true" BB30 frame to fit them.

after much deliberation (about a year ago) I also went for a GXP DZero and Red rings. It's been great - really easy to swap between my cross / commute bike and 'good' bike. Much quicker than swapping pedals, and can get a GXP BB in just about any frame, including the genesis zero disc im building up ! Enjoy.
