Strengths:    About a two minute setup. Its a breeze. It stops the fight and just works right.
Its for bikes with 9 rear cogs, but would clearly work well for most bikes.

Weaknesses:    Appears to be a full size derailleur, but yet it does still work as advertised.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the FSA Gossamer / IRD CD front derailleur for a family member's bike. It's an R600 (Ultegra 9) and XT blend with a cyclocross drive and a compact double crank.
This front derailleur is flawless.

Gossamer crank BB30 to 68mm question.

Ok totally new, I am sure this has been asked before but I could not find any post for it. I wanted to build my own bike and figured I would start with some parts. While on CL I found a full Ultegra for a great price. The guy also gave me a pair of Gossamer cranks that fit into a 30 BB. they w ... Read More »

Crankset clicking - FSA Gossamer - BB or arms?

Picked up a new (to me) CX bike over the weekend. Noticed the crankset clicks a little bit - something I hadn't noticed on my test ride. It has an FSA Gossamer compact and looks like internal bottom bracket (no big metal rings outside the bottom bracket area of the frame. I'm guessing this would ... Read More »
