The FSA is cheaper than Campy Record, but it would be fun to get in your LBS's face and have them explain "better." I doubt you will find much support for this claim anyplace other than a shop that gets a higher markup on FSA, or is just fond of spewing BS.adelaney01 said:I want to buy a new crankset for a frameset that I just ordered. My LBS tells me the FSA is better than the carbon Record? I was looking for some feedback on how the Campy performs vs FSA?
Ah, the old "a lot stiffer" gambit.adelaney01 said:The LBS stated the FSA mega exo BB was much stiffer than the square taper design of campy.
I have an older FSA octalink crank which works fine but I have a few bucks to spare and would like to finish out my Record groupo on the new frame.
Wow, I am impressed. Most shops only have teenagers working as shop rats. You managed to find a LBS with a mechanical engineer who also has the testing equipment to back up this statement.adelaney01 said:The LBS stated the FSA mega exo BB was much stiffer than the square taper design of campy...
I don't need to ask a teenager, I have one and he does not hesitate to let me know how stupid I am. In addition this season he has taken to reminding me how slow I am as he regularly kicks my butt at every single town line sign. Maybe when he turns thirty I will be smart again and perhaps not so slow on the bike.terry b said:Hey, don't you know teenagers are a lot smarter than the rest of us? Don't take my word for it, just ask them.
