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!

I currently have a Simano 105 110 x 50 chainring on my bike. It seems as if I am constantly shifting back and forth on the rear cassette to maintain my cadence. I have looked online for a 48 tooth ring, but cant find any. Does anyone know if they make smaller than 50, but larger than 44? Or shoul ... Read More »

12-27t vs 12-29t with Campy 11sp 50/34 Compact Chainrings?

I am middle aged and out of shape, and usually need all the help I can get in the hills. No major mountains nearby but i have had to walk the bike a couple of times with hills. I currently use 53/39 chainrings with a 170 mm crank and an 11-25t 9sp cassette but am in the process of ordering a new 11 ... Read More »

Will 2004 campy veloce crank/chainrings work with shimano chain and cassette?

I have a full Dura Ace 7800 bike. 2004 Cannondale. All original components except the chain which was last replaced a few months ago. I love it as is but I'm climbing over 10,000 feet in a couple weeks. I really need to put a compact crank on it ASAP. My training rides with 39/12-27 have b ... Read More »
