Got a Shimano Saint crankset on my bike (dont ask how it got there).
Will I feel a differance if I swapped it to a lighter crankset ? what I mean, I know a lighter bike will climb easier and will feel snappier, especially when reducing weight on the wheels . will reducing weight on the cranks be significant ?
Thanks

less rotating mass is always noticable. if ya dont need the strength and mass of the saints, ditch em.

so how did those get on yer bike anyway?

Check out the SLX cranks for a trade out - decent prices out there to be had, reasonable weight and built a little tougher than most light cranksets.
