I looking to see what options for cranksets for the 429 are....I know about the shimano's...what else can be used? specifically light weight stuff? or what are the requirements for fitting?

The shell is 92mm wide and uses a pressfit BB but not a BB30 setup. Other than Shimano you could use a RaceFace Next or similar crank. If you really want to go nuts then there's always XX...
Pivot should use a BB30 then any crank can be run!
I was running a Deus XC crank with great results. I recently switched to 2x9 and picked up a set of ROTOR 3D 2x9 cranks w/ Q-Rings. Shifting is spot on, chainline is better and w/ Eggbeater 4ti pedals the overall Q-Factor is low. 110/74 offers a nice variety of gearing options too. Currently 27/40 but might change it out to 26/38 with Standard rings in the future.

The total package weighs 673g w/ the steel axle. I could lighten it up with standard rings but I'm like the Q-Rings.

Check em out!
I'm running Race Face Next SL's with FRM rings.
614g with pressfit BB, 630gms with standard BB

BB30 on a Pivot design would be impossible. It wouldn't provide enough real-estate for welding and linkage...

Any Shimano Compatible crank can be used. SRAM now makes a press fit BB unit for their XX crank. Now you can run the gambit on crank choices!
