    Strength:

    1)Looks: the low profile design is sleek and super sexy!! 2)Stiffness is up there with the best!(ISIS version) 3)Very affordable! 4)Its an FSA! 5)Light for the price!

    Weakness:

    Its not carbon...

    Swapped this crank with the Ultegra that was OE with my bike... These are the best value for money cranks I've ever used! Compared to exotics, this crank may seem low end, but those of us who have used it will agree that this crank is very high quality. Why pay a few hundred dollars more for something that says DuraAce or Chorus?? The 7075-T6 FSA chainrings on this crank are very smooth shifting and looks great!

    Strength:

    probably the best strength/weight/price ratio. i can buy 4 of these and a bottom bracket and still get change from the cost of a campy carbon crank. Nuff said. the best customer service and support.

    Weakness:

    FSA dont make a italian thread bottom bracket of their own - YET!

    can i just say firstly that the finish is top notch. weighed mine on a digital scale that any colombian would trust and they came in at 614 grams (172.5mm). with bolts it comes in under the manufacturers claims of 635 grams. still lighter than any campy or shimano offering unless you want the new campy carbon. my LBS (no longer) botched the left crank arm when installing them to an ultegra b/bracket. my subsequent call to FSA had them send a new crank arm to me free of charge. try that with shimano or campy. having ridden the same frame with ultegra and dura-ace cranks i can comfortably say that they are stiffer (i am heavy/strong) but not totally free of flex. what is? these will definately be transferred on my next frame such is my satisfaction and their appeal. i will look to buy other FSA products as the need arises.
