The new Dura-Ace 7800 crankset / bottom bracket combo is perhaps the most striking change that Shimano has made to the Dura-Ace group.

Strengths:    Stiff, superior shifting and build quality.

Weaknesses:    A bit of a weight penalty over my old crankset. Chainrings cost more than many cranksets.

Bottom Line:   
Got this crank free with new warranty frame, an upgrade from the specialized pro carbon bb30 crank.

A bit heavier but over all better is my thoughts on this crank, about 100gr heavier than the old crank but much stiffer and the chainrings are incredible!
Shifting is much quicker and smoother now.

The only problem is the Chainrings are super expensive so I use an ultegra 52t big ring when I need to restrict my gears for junior racing, The DA 53t go's back on straight away when I'm done though. These chain rings make every other Shimano chain ring look vastly inferior.

I also like the fact that shimano uses normal sized, good quality chain ring bolts etc for ease of chaning chain rings. with my old crank there was a T26? bolt on one side an a 7mm allen key on the other, needless to say i quickly wrecked the bolts because I didnt have the correct tool to undo them (and I have a few tools!)

Strengths:    Super stiff. Nice looking.

Weaknesses:    Can break. Photos to prove it if asked for..

Bottom Line:   
Without doubt a very stiff crankset which transmits power straight out the back but..and this is where it gets interesting, these cranks snapped under load at the point of contact with the spider and the axle ! The cranks were purchased second hand with 10,000 miles on them but showed no sign of crash damage or cracking.. Due to them not being bought brand new there is no claim to a warranty..

Strengths:    Stiff, no flex, rigid, solid. Looks great too. Shifts well. Easy to install and pretty light.

Weaknesses:    I don't like the fact that the mounting bolts are open to be sweated on.

Bottom Line:   
So, this was the first 10 speed component I upgraded on my existing all Dura Ace 9 speed bike. And I didn't really get it for performance reasons, only because my existing crank looked like crap from corrosion.

But the minute after I bolted it on and took it for a test ride, I knew that this crank was about more than looks. It was SOLID like a rock under me and front derailleur rubbing is a thing of the past. On hill, mashing, whatever, this crank is there like the earth under your feet. The rings shift great too.

This is by far the best component of the DA 10 group. I ended up buying one for my Cervelo also.
