Anyone have info on Truvatin cransets vs. FSA?

Hey guys,

I need your help. I bought a bike from BikesDirect and the crankset was supposed to be an RPM by FSA Forged Aluminum Triple. Instead I got a Truvatin Sram Isoflow road crank. I am sort of familiar with the FSA crank but I know nothing about the Truvatin.

If anyone can give me some perspective about what I got I would appreciate it. I will most likely have to send the crank back for replacement, and I canít ride until I get some idea of what to do.

Thanks

I wouldn't sweat the difference. Tru-Vativ and FSA cranks swim in the same pond.

Thanks guys, I plan to upgrade to a Shimano when I can, but in the meantime it is good to know that what I have is not significantly different from what I expected.

+1

The only other crank that I like is Sugino. Now that Campy doesn't use a square taper crank/BB Sugino is the only game in town. At least the only quality game in town.

PS. I believe Stronglight uses Sugino forgings.
