    CANNONDALE Si VS FSA TEAM CARBON ??? HELP!!

    CANNONDALE Si VS FSA TEAM CARBON ??? HELP!!


    Hi there!!!
    I have two 2004 team scalpel frames one frame has an oversized bb with a cannondale Si crankset installed & the other frame is a regular stlyle bb shell & has a fsa team carbon crankset with a Ti bb installed....
    I need to part with one of the frames so i need some constructive criticism on which i should keep? which of the two crankset's would need less maintanance? I have heard that the FSA carbon crankset's have creaking issues? Am i limited to just the Si crankset with the oversized bb, or is there more crankset option's later on down the road if i choose to upgrade?
    your feedback would be fab!!!

    I have never used either, so I'm not the best source for information. I do know that the Si crankset has the reputation of being the lightest and stiffest on the market, and people I've known that use them love them. Durability seems to be excellent. You are tied to that crank with the oversized shell however, so that may be a concern. I'd say that if you want the lightest, stiffest crank available now go with the C-dale, if you're more concerned with future upgrades go with the FSA.

    Thanks for your reply!
    Are the carbon FSA crankset's worthy? the reviews are providing me with mixed emotions.....decision's decision's?? got a week to decide as my mate is happy with either Si or FSA.
