    FSA torque spec's.

    On the bolt it says torque is 450-550 Kgf cm. These are the aluminum cranks. Does someone know what this is in ft.lbs.? I greased mine, and it needs to be cleaned and loctited. Keeps comming loose.

    1 Kgf/cm = .0723302 ft/lb so 450Kgf/cm = 32.5ft/lbs 550Kgf/cm = 39.8ft/lbs
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.

    How old are the cranks? Is the fixing bolt steel or aluminum? If aluminum it should be replaced with a steel one ASAP. Your local LBS can order it.
