We got in some new FRM stuff and of course I had to throw in on the scales so I wanted to pass along the info.

FRM Integrated Mountain double (44-29t) with all hardware, 172.5mm = 716g
FRM Integrated Mountain triple (44-32-22t) with all hardware, 175mm = 736g
44t, 5 arm ring = 73g
29t, 5 arm ring = 25g
FRM road calipers = 193g for the pair

I have yet to weigh the new Team headset and the new stems didn't arrive with this shipment.

If someone feels this crosses the line of spam, let me know and I'll delete it.

Has anyone actually used those cranks? Are they stiff enough for 175lb riders? The axles are bigger than the Extralites. (25mm vs 22mm)

I've only ridden the ISIS version to this point but will be putting some integrateds on my next build. I'll let others that may have tried them chime in on stiffness. We did set up Mary McConneloug and Mike Broderick with the doubles last year for their race bikes and they never had anything bad to say. Mary is on the smaller side but Mike is a little bigger and very powerful and to the best of my knowledge did not have any flexxing issues.

any rider weight limit?
The weights are with chainrings and bolts and with the cups, bearings, seals, etc still in the plastic bag. FRM does not state a rider weight limit.

Mike and Mary both ride 2x9 setups with the exception of Worlds when Mary put on the triple because there was one super steep climb right at the start. Mike grunted his way through with the double.

Yes, the weights should match because I weighed them all myself before adding the info to the site or posting here. The claimed weights in the catalog are different but I don't have them here at home with me now. Off the top of my head for instance, the 44T rings are supposed to be 70g but are really 73g and the 29T are supposed to be 24g but are really 25g. Not sure about the cranksets but I can check tomorrow and get back to you with claimed weights if you like. I seem to remember the doubles are a claimed 696g but I will double check.

FRM cranks

Do you have the triple cranks in 172.5 in stock? Do you know q-factor.
