What's lighter, a Profile mini with chromo 3/8" bolts or an Odyssey Antigram with the alu axle and the 3/8" bolts?

I can't decide between a black or raw sprocket. My bike is all black with silver chain and black and grey seat. Lame question I know.

Not sure, it isn't easy to find the Profile weights with a specific option (last time I looked). Pretty sure the Antigram will be lighter though... it is seriously light with that set-up (12.5oz).

I use automotive wheel bearing grease on my bike parts,never had a problem using it.Don't get suckered into paying for "special" Park tools bike grease.

I picked up a tube when I was building my bike so I've got it sitting here anyway. It was cheap enough though

I don't go through a ton of grease, so buying a tub of auto grease doesn't make much sense for me. I use the same green tube of Phil's that I've had for years.

One of the groms I rode with had a set front and rear. And they seemed fine. I'd run one in the rear
