    Which would you choose?

    I am looking in to buying Campagnolo Record Pista cranks or Shimano Dura Ace FC-7600 cranks. Which would you choose, and why? I mainly want to know which crank is stiffer.

    Thank you

    DA is stiffer, but I'd choose Campy every time.

    Any reason why Campy everytime if DA is stiffer?
    I would take the stiffer cranks imo, but what is your reason for Campy?

    IMO, Campy looks better. AND Campy is #ballin'

    Well I'm a type of guy that would rather take a stiffer crank > over something flashy. So I guess if that is all for Campy is its style, I might as well save a couple bucks and take DA.

    But thank you for your opinions

    If you have to ask...

    I like italian bikes too, and I even have some campy stuff... but I don't get it.

    Shimano : Click :: Campy :: Snap :: SRAM : Bang

    If you're familiar with cars...

    Dura Ace = Nissan GTR
    Campagnolo = Lamborghini Gallardo

    Naw the Gallardo is too tame and useful. Go with like the Zonda or something absurd. Maybe the Murcielago

    Not very familiar with cars, but I know what a Lamborghini is and what a GTR is.
    But I'm guessing you are saying the Campy are better. Any reason why you believe so?

    The GTR is actually quicker than the Lambo and it costs less, but it's less flashy. At the end of the day though they are both extremely fast supercars that anyone would be satisfied with. The same can be said about the two cranksets you're comparing.

    I just really want the stiffer crank out of the two. So i'm guessing the DA would be better? Sorry if i'm not really getting all of what you are saying.

    Both cranksets are expensive, flashy and stiff.

    DAs are less expensive, less flashy, more stiff.
    Campys are more expensive, more flashy, less stiff.

    Since the DAs are more stiff, it is the one you want.

    Alright! Thank you

    DA it is! Flashy is nothing if the less flashy one can perform better!

    Stiffness in cranks is really much more of a non-issue than a lot of riders seem to realize.

    It's kind of a toss up, but I'd get Dura Ace.

    But are you really gonna notice the difference between Omniums and Campy Records or Dura Ace? And while you're at it, might as well throw Sugino in there too.

    That's what I'm saying. Once it gets to a certain level, like Omniums and Sugino 75's, I don't think we're gonna notice too much.

    Saddles I could understand, but crank stiffness? Between high-end cranksets? Once you get on the bike, you're not really gonna notice.

    This is one of the points I was trying to get at.

    op...if stiffness is your main concern (that phrase is making me a bit...uhhh...uncomfortable) why are you looking at dura ace fc-7600s instead of the newer tecnology, lighter, & supposedly even stiffer fc 7710s?

    after deciding to treat myself to a nice crankset - i'd been waffling among 75s, both das, & record pistas for quite a while. researched my ass off on them & wasn't able to come up with a truly logical reason to choose & then realized that i am not so proficient to actually feel much difference in them in use. ended up pulling the trigger on a set of the campy cranks the other day when i couldn't resist what i considered to be an outstanding deal on them at probikekit. plus, they really do just look soooo nice...

    Well I don't know about you guys, but when I see DA cranks, they just look better than Campy Records in my opinion. So I think I'll just go for the DA's.

    I've heard from track racers that the campy's are noodley compared to other top of the line track cranksets, but I guarantee you wouldn't notice.

    I have DA 7710's.

    They be coo'.
