After busting my Morati Ti cranks, I opted to go with a set of FSA Carbon Pros for my SS. I'm still bashing on these 4-yrs later. I was so happy with my FSAs, that when I started spec'ing my new Titus RX-100, I went with the Team Carbons and have been equally happy with these.flybyknight said:I got a new frame on order "intense 5.5" and the bike shop is recomending FSA carbon cranks. Anyone have a pro or a con on these cranks? I would appreciate all your input.
come on dude, dont be sooooooooo biased. i remember that your first complain about your new bike was the left side of your fsa carbon crankset that was coming loose all the time. am i right?Trevor! said:I've been using FSA Carbon Pros for about 1.5 years and have not got a single complaint about them. I happen to think they are stiffer than the XTRs I used to have, shift just as good and are simply reliable. They are also very durable, so there is nothing to worry about there.
Overall very happy!
if im not mistaken this problem was a comon issue with the older versions but was fixed later.YaMon said:It took a couple of years (5) and my riding style changed from XC to All Mountain/freeride during that time. To be specific, the aluminum insert that the pedal screws into seperated from the carbon fiber. If you plan on doing any freeriding or aggresive riding, I would not recommend.
Prior to that, not one problem and loved them. Oh, I weight 150 pounds. Just replaced it with a holzfeller.
Adjusting the chainline with ISIS cranks really depends on which bottom bracket you are using. Some, like the American Classic, do not allow for any adjustment. While others, like the Race Face Signature, are easy to adjust.The Squeaky Wheel said:Chain line is not an issue with the newer external BB cranks. They come with spacers which makes chainline adjustment a snap. The older ISIS types were trickier.
