    Anyone know if I can use an FSA Carbon Team crankset with slpined ISIS fitting instead of a Campag
    Record 10 spd setup - of course I would use an ISIS splined BB (Shimano DA)?

    I want to use it with Record RDR & FDR, 10spd chain etc

    Thanks

    You have some research to do first. For one thing, Shimano's Octalink BB is not at all compatible
    with the FSA ISIS splined crank. And thankfully so since the Shimano design is a poor one. You will
    need an ISIS bottom bracket; there are many to choose from.

    This ought to work (I've already seen it work), as long as the chainrings you buy are 10 speed
    compatible. You just need to get the right BB length- FSA could probably advise you on that and may
    even have compatibility information on their Web site.

    I use it with my Chorus set-up just fine.

    Spindle is 108mm. I use the Race face bb, as I had trouble finding the FSA bb at the time I got it.
    Only problem is the Raceface bb, tends to loosen up and had to over tighten it.

    While it is made to be 10speed, it would work just fine as a 9 speed. I have the older FSA 9 speed
    on another bike. Biggest difference is the added stiffness provided by the ISIS bb.

    I was able to use Shimano bb tools to tighten the cups and remove the cranks.

    Even with the added stiffness of the ISIS bb, I probably would have gotten the cranks in Campy taper
    if they were available at the time as I have more confidence in Campy bb's than all others.

    Good luck

    Use the FSA crank/BB-with any Campag system-works just fine-

    No need to even have the rings be '10s' compatible. I have put a Super Record crank, DuraAce crank,
    Old 8s Campagnolo crank onto a 10s system w/o problem.
