well, the Carbon FSA lists at $499. But this is for the BB and the crank
since its integrated. The carbon Chorus is $489 for the crankset only.
besides the similar cost, bottom line anyways is that its not a money
issue, this is an insurance replacement.
My tiny mind tells me that the external bearing BB/crank is the way to
go, I had terrible luck with the chorus bb/crank on my last bike, and
really want to move on (now I know that some may be tempted to open up
the torque/no-retorque it lube/no lube it no problem my god is better
than your god square taper discussion...I've moved on)
Since I enjoy the 53-39, I have no plans to go compact. The FSA road
version and the Truvative road version are in the OEM only stage now
with retail distribution due in January. The DA is probably the best
looking crankset, but I dont know, with an otherwise Campy build-up on a
carbon bike, I'd rather see the carbon "FSA" down there than "Dura-ace"
much less flea market i think, although I suppose I could polish the
Or I could wait 5 years and maybe Campy will come out with an external
Just looking for opinions.
