FSA K-Force Light MTB Crankset

The Crank was a bit of a dilemma, so much choice but then a chance visit to PriceShaggers, the Ebay clearout arm of Planet-X turned up this for 164 notes, complete with a Ceramic bottom bracket…No contest! The catch, well this is a 170mm length unit, but as it happens that was the direction I was heading (more later about that)

Yes I know Lloyd, Its not the full on red/white one

Ceramic Bottom Bracket in Spangly Red

Hang on though….. 4 bolt’s on a 94 pitch circle, that’s no standard I’ve ever heard of. That’s going to make replacement rings a bit trickier that a visit to the local shop.

So how does it look as a single then; pretty good me thinks. The Spider is carbon, so I’m going to have to make some protective shims for the back of the nuts.

Looks neat as an SS crank
