    FSA carbon pro team issue crankset?

    Guy has one for sale locally pretty cheap--never used, triple ring mtb crankset, octalink. Plan would be to ditch the big and little rings of course, get a Shimano octalink v2 bb, and put it on the Kona unit. Order an HBC chainring and meanwhile ride the original 32 middle for a few months.

    Does this sound like a decent, inexpensive upgrade, or will I kick myself for getting the Octalink? Isn't that the same bb as the folks polishing up the xtr stuff?

    Anyone know if I could go spider-less with these?

    Check the BCD of that crankset before purchase.

    I have the FSA carbon SLK compact from a few years ago and when I went to make it SS nobody sells rings with that BCD. Dan with HBC told me no, there is just no call for him to be wasting his time with a one off.

    To my knowledge, there is no way to go spiderless.

    Does this pic work?

    Anyway from my brief looking around they made isis and octalink. Crankset is a couple of years old. Pic shows "104 bcd" stamped on middle ring... That's pretty standard, right?

    4 bolt 104 BCD is a standard setup.
