Compact Cranks

Hi All

I am after some recommendations for a Compact Crankset to replace my standard setup. I have a budget of max $400. I am hoping to get something light but also something that will last. My current setup is Zeus Ziclon with Mega Exo BB.

Assuming your BB is English thread, you can get Shimano DA for under $400 from Euro sites, with a BB for a tad over. Sky's the limit!
