Upgrading my crankset to Deore XT

We went to Baguio City by car to celebrate daughter's birthday. But, at Rosario, La Union, I alighted and dismounted TweetyPot (my 29er bike) from the car. Thence, I pedaled about 30 kms. all the way up to Mines View Hotel via Kennon Road. While the bike's parked at the hotel, wifey noticed the change of the color of the crank arms from black to silver. I thought she wouldn't notice. He he he . . .

The crankset was recently upgraded from Deore to Deore XT, which I bought second hand from a fellow biker through PMTB.
With the upgrade, I shaved 0.15 kilograms from the bike's weight but spent P5,800.
