    FSA V drive?

    Anybody have any thoughts--good or bad--on the FSA V Drive for my SS? I currently have a Stylo 1.1 that came with my Haro Mary 29er, but the damn non-drive side crank keeps coming loose (apparently that is an issue with the Stylo). My LBS recommended the FSA V Drive. Can't find any reviews in the product review page, so I thought I'd go to the source.
    Nobody gives a s#$t you singlespeed.

    I switched all builds and kits from Stylo to V-Drive, couldn't be happier.

    FSA uses a non-drive bolt WITH two pinch bolts in the arm, it's not coming loose.
    Pricing/weight/durability is all similar.

    As an added bonus I really appreciate FSA's support (for wee folk like me).

    BECAUSE I SAID SO

    I've been running a V-Drive on my SS for a couple years now. I'm happy with it, and I havent had any problems with it coming loose. My friends and I have had big problems with Race Face cranks coming loose, so stay away from them. I DNF'd my last race because the Race Face came loose and I wasnt carrying the 8mm AND the .050 Caliber allen keys to tighten it back up. Like I said, though, no problems with the FSA.

    I have the FSA V-Drive cranks (ss) on my 1x9, and used to have them on my Singlespeed. I ride this bike a lot and they have never failed me. I'd buy them again.
