Hey guys, I'd like to stick with my compact set when I start building my WW bike but I wam have a hard time finding compact crank arms. I prefer the look of carbon but I suppose I could be persuaded to go with something else, as long its light. I'm thinking of using a Specialites 50t for the outer and a Fibre-lyte 36 on the inner. BCD needs to 110. Thanks again for all the help you've all given me.

Scratch that. I think I may like the E-bones. For some reason I thought I looked at them and didn't like them. I think it was the Tune ones I didn't like.
Now, does anyone know if the will do custom work? I'd like to have 170mm. And their chainrings look good too, but I'd really like 50/36

How tall are you, what is your inside-leg measurement, and finally how long is your thigh bone in relation to your inside leg?
As far as chainrings are concerned stick with TA for both unless longevity and cost are of no concern to you. I think Cycle dynamics do 10 Speed Campag cassettes now not sure if they use 11 or 12 top. But if you are using an 11 then try Extralite 48/34 Rings as this will give you almost same gear as 53 x 12.
Feel free to PM if you need help as I am in bike trade in UK.
