A set of FSA pro track cranks came on the bike I just purchased, but I already have a set of 75s I could put on as well. Any one have a suggestion on which might be better? Are they comparable or are the 75s a better set? I can't seem to find a ton about the FSA just tiny mentions here and there. Thanks.

I love Sugino 75s. Stiff, long lasting and reliable. Whether they or the FSA track track pros are the better crank I'm not sure but my gut would take the 75s over the track pros just because I've raced on the same crank for years without issue.
Do you have a matching BB (ISO taper) for the 75s? That could make the difference for you
FSA products are garbage, while Sugino 75 is a first-rate, professional-level product. Stick with the Suginos and try to sell the FSA before the rest of the world wises up.
That's not true. At least half of the racers that I know use FSA chain rings. I know world champions that use them. I have 4 (48, 49, 50, & 51). They are half the price of Campy and Dura Ace, but just as good.
To be clear, their track rings are just fine, because they don't have to shift, and yes, they're a good value. The quality of the FSA Carbon Pro crank is suspect, as is the increasingly hard-to-find bottom bracket. The quality of FSA ten-speed chainring is terrible, which is how they came to earn the nickname Front Shifting Abnormalities.

Theres a reason most mechanics wont put anyone on FSA..... Fuc#ed, Stuck, and abandoned!
Th FSA track cranks arent that heavy witch is nice but they are flexy pieces of garbage. The ISIS BB that comes with them is also a pile of crap. In fact nowa days most ISIS BB's spin like **** compared to the origional Race Face Signature serries ones. (circa 2002).
For the record FSA rings arent bad on track. They are fairly round witch is nice, but in no way shape or form as nice as a Dura-Ace or Sugino ring. Not in a million years.
Take the FSA off and sell it to some punk hippster, run the 75's.
