Strengths:    one set I have still shifts perfectly after 25,000 miles!

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
OK, here is for the full sized chain rings... I have used the 53/39 combination and the 54/39 combination... (Bought the 54 because it looked cool... Other people may say something differnet, but for me, that is the simple truth...)

Anyway, everything has shifted perfectly since the day I started using them.. (I put 0 for price paid because they came with crank sets...

Strengths:    Looks - the FSA rings do look very stylish: a "light-weight' look and the color of the hard anodizing matches the carbon color of the cranks.

Weaknesses:    Functionality: Poor performance shifting. Down shifts were always done with the fear of dropping the chain. 50-T tooth broke after ~4000-miles.

Bottom Line:   
FSA compact rings are not very good. I respect that FSA was the first company to really 'go to market' with compact cranks, however their execution in the quality department failed. Even with the supposedly re-designed compact rings specific for 10-spd set-ups, the performance is fair (at best). FSA techs claim it is the 16-T size differential (50-T / 34-T) that leads to poor down shifts and that compact specific front derailleurs are necessary. Not true - Shimano has this figured out - see my review!

Similar Products Used:   Highly recommend the Shimano Compact Rings as an upgrade. If you are into function over form, you will be super pleased with precise shifting of the Shimano rings. Only wish that Shimano came out with their version of the compact cranks sooner - this way I would not have had to suffer with FSA mediocre quality products and poor shifting for so loooong!

Bike Setup:   The best

Anyone using Shimano chainrings on Sram triple crankset?

I have a 2006 with original 10-Speed 3X 52/39/30 Bontrager Race Lite which I need to replace the chainrings. Have never been overly enthusiastic with the shifting from middle to large, and hear good things about Shimano triples shifting. The rest of the drive train is Shimano (less chain) anyway. ...

Single narrow / wide chainrings - performance in the mud for CX

What is everyone's thoughts on using single narrow / wide chainrings in muddy CX race conditions (vs. a standard single chainring with bashguard)? I like the idea of narrow / wide chainrings in dry conditions, because it is much harder to drop a chain (if you bang the rear wheel on a barrier or the ... Read More »

I have SRAM GXP cranks on both my mtb and my regular road bike. I really like the simplicity and performance of GXP and so would like to replace my fixie crank with one as well. These cranks have removable spiders with the capability of installing direct mount spline chainrings. This works well on t ... Read More »
