    I was rebuilding my Giant OCR3 and needed a good quality crank at a good price. The FSA fit the bill and has not let me down. Good value and weight. Shifting is excellent!

      Comments about FSA Omega Compact 50/34T Crankset:

      The FSA Omega is a quality crank with CNC'd aluminum chain rings and respectable die cast aluminum arms. Going to 50/34 compact PLUS outside bearings will impress anyone who is on an inside bearing 53/39 crank and if you are on an antiquated square taper crank then this will astound you with how much improvement so little money can make. Yes, forged arms and carbon arms are nicer but this crank gives you 90% of the improvement you would get if you spent double to quintuple this amount. Installation is easy once you get that old inside bearing BB out so be sure you can do that or let a pro do it.

      Great Cranks

        Comments about FSA Omega Compact 50/34T Crankset:

        Bought these when recently upgraded my 8-speed Sora drivetrain to 10-speed 105 on my 2010 GT Series Four road bike. The 8-speed came with FSA Vero cranks with square-taper bottom bracket and this was the best deal I found for a 10-speed designed crankset, especially since it includes the external bearing bottom bracket. I was concerned if moving from a square taper cartridge BB to the external bearing type BB would mess with the chainline at all and was glad to find that it is fully compatible. The square taper BB that I removed is a 68x108 and requires a 2.5mm shim on this bike. I first tried this external bearing BB without the shim and it installed perfectly but the chainline was indeed off, so I put the shim in place on this BB and it is perfect.
        On the first ride I could see that I get less frame movement at the BB when I stand on the pedals on steep climbs - confirming what I've heard that external bearing BBs are stiffer for better power transfer.
        Bottom line: highly recommended.

          Nice crankset, not the lightest, but lighter than the solid axle bottom bracket crankset it replaced.

          I also like the color contrast between the crankarms and the chainrings.
