I just picked up a Roleur Carbon, and I've been quite impressed by the finish and overall solidity. The FSA crank you mention is an ISIS-type setup, no? i.e. you have a separate bottom bracket. The Roleur Carbon has the Giga x-pipe BB and is quite stiff. Not the lightest crankset going (gives up maybe 40-50 grams to FSA SL-K), but very nice and solid.

They make a TEAM ISSUE CARBON PRO MEGA EXO now.
It's not on the website, but they are ready to ship soon.



Just a tad heavier due to the rings than the SLK and a cheaper and heavy Carbon Omega is on the way.

IMO, FSA is more reilable, espically with the BB.
As with ANY External BB crank, you MUST have your BB shell faced to ensure proper installation and no bearing issues!

I don't care what frame you have, even the slightest facing can help. 90% of issues I hear with FSA external BB has to do with BB parallel issues.

Now with the top frame makers, it might be close enough to perfect and the bearings will last long enough. It can't hurt to have your BB checked.
