there is two shots i have of my extralite setup.
coming in at 578g. i know some people have said there flexy but im a feather at 135lbs and they feel stiff to me.
i like the look of extralite way way more but its $238.00 to save 100g

I would choose KCNC. My friend had E-bones last year and he had a lot of problems with it only after a half of the season. The only positive thing is their customer servis which is probably the best in europe I know. Last year he switched to XTR and says it is much better and also stiffer and he himself weights just around 65kg. I am using KCNC second year now and still happy with them. The only bad thing is a difficult instalation.

This is in regard to what Zigo said. I have the XTR M970 crankarms mounted to a single speed 34T Rotor Q Ring and I love it. 2 seasons and still no problems at all.

There are other crankarms out there that have more of a "bling" factor but when it comes to function you can't go wrong with the Shimano's. If I were to pick though I would get the Extralites.

Now only if Fairwheel bikes can get the damn Extralite seatpost in stock I would be set.
