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.

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 »

FSA Gossamer crank 36/46 to 50/34?

Quick question. I was wondering if I can put Sram chain rings on an FSA crank or if I should use FSA rings. I want to go to a compact gearing for a better range of gears on my cross bike. I'm not sure about the bolt pattern...Read More »

42t inner for my FSA Gossamer Cross crank?

I have an FSA Gossamer Cross crank 36/46. I want to go 1x10 on it with a 42T ring and a bashguard. Can you guys direct me as to what to buy for the chainring?

FSA Gossamer MegaExo Triple BB question

I have a 2008 FSA crank, are the bottom brackets to these interchangeable with Shimano by any chance? Not sure if I need to replace mine yet, but am looking ahead. I have been hearing "noises" down there and will first tighten everything in sight including cleats, seats, bottle racks and so on. I am ... Read More »
