Strengths:    Inexpensive, strong, reliable, no chain suck, easy to maintain. Reasonably lightweight.

Weaknesses:    2x10 version doesn't fit a very small granny.

Bottom Line:   
My Cannondale RZ 120-1 came with a 2x10 version of these, which I've used for two years. They were perfect for through-riding Kokopelli's Trail (150 miles, 17,000 vertical feet, 24 hours) twice. Never any chain suck, solid shifting, etc.

Due to the fact that the 2x10 version can only accommodate a 27-tooth granny, I moved to a 3x10 set for the Colorado Trail Race (500 miles, 70,000 vertical feet, 7 days) I replaced the big ring with a FSA bashguard, and converted them to 2x10. They worked great--no chain suck, easy shifting, etc. The conversion was easy, and FSA even threw a BB30 wrench on the box.

I think that the Afterburners are one of the best-kept secrets out there. Excellent product, at a very reasonable price.

FSA Afterburner BB30 new vs old

The 2011 afterburner comes in silver and weigh 870grams and the 2012 comes in black and weighs 823 but the crank arms look the same. I plan on using the crank as a 1x9 with a renthal ring and was wondering if the actual crank itself weighs the same and if the weight savings is just from the new 100- ... Read More »

Question: OEM FSA Afterburner BB30 w/ carbon spider

Anyone use the OEM FSA Afterburner 44/32/22 BB30 crankset with the carbon spider? They are standard on a few bikes the last year or two, mostly Cannondales. Every so often I see one on Ebay. I was wondering about the reliability of them, ease of obtaining replacement parts like chainrings etc.Read More »

Shimano M542 44/32/22 vs. FSA Afterburner BB30 39/27

I'm new to both 29'ers and Cannondale, and not familiar with the BB30 feel/acceleration. This is for a hardtail. What would you guys like? Thanks!Read More »
