Are there any reviews and/or tests regarding cranksets (i.e. stiffness)? I'm curious which crankset is stiffer...Dura-Ace or FSA K-Force? I've been told the VeloNews or someone else performed tests and the Shimano Ultegra was actually stiffer followed by the Dura-Ace?

I've never been able to tell. The differences are probably so small that I doubt that anyone could tell just by riding.

It doesn't matter

Thanks for the link. That seems to support what I have heard.
The flex in a high end modern crank is minor compared to the flex in the frame at the BB, the flex in the pedals, the flex in the shoes, etc. So it's interesting to read this tests, but they pretty much don't tell you anything that will affect your riding or performance.
