Help identifying an FSA Carbon crank
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi guys.

Can anyone tell me if the FSA crank shown below is from the generation(s) that fail due to bad tolerances/incompatible material interfaces?

Thanks. http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=352712

Why do you need to know? If you are looking to buy and there are doubts, look elsewhere for a crank.

Well the problem is, FSA kept quiet about their vigorelli cranks and made small changes to the interface between the chainring and spider/ platter behind the scene without changing the design at all...
Considering there's easily old stock for such an expensive crank that didn't really sell in the first place and the lack of any official recall or replacement program of any sort, your best bet is serial numbers. That is, if they even had them, to check with FSA.

So yeah, this is more of a gamble on your part. I wouldn't take the seller's word for it either.
If it's a rev. 1 crank and the owner doesn't experience play, it might develop under your ownership.

I need to know because I am interested in buying the bike.

Why not just ask the seller?

Tell the guy that if you buy it you need to replace the crank because you don't trust it. knock some money off the price as appropriate

FSA was zero help with my Vigs.

Do not expect any help from them.

Thanks everyone. I passed on the bike although it was sweet.
