    FSA Gossamer Mega Exo Crankset

    Does anyone have any feedback on the above mentioned crankset? We're looking for black on black, 175 captain/172.5 stoker. We really like the looks of these but do not want to buy them if they are problamatic.
    Thank you in advance,
    Suzanne and Kelly

    The cranks are fine, but know that the outboard bearings they require can be problematic and will probably have to be replaced more often than you would like. Have a pro shop face your BB housings and install the bearings to spec and keep the warranty data handy.

    I have them on my single and on my tandem. The bearings wore out on my single in about 10000 miles. They ARE easy to replace, but I usually go a lot longer on a set of bearings.
