go for dura ace cranks!!!
they look really nice, are hammer stiff, shifting won't be a problem, and when the chainrings do not fit the campi chain, just go for a shimano 10 speed chain, they run better with the campagnolo cassette than the original chain.

according to tour magazine stiffness of both cranks is very similar.
The FSA is lighter, can't say anything about the durability and looks you'll have to figur out yourself :wink:
But if you ride a record drivetrain... looks like a pretty simple choice to me :)

the listings here say the K-forces are heavier - 762 and 790g. FSA initially claimed they were 660g, and recently upped it to 740g, same as DA's claimed weight. how much did Tour magazine weigh them at?

I have a Campy drivetrain with a DA10 crank. one of the cat 2 riders in my area does too. lots of people have done it.

i think the compact version your talking about is the sl-k not the K-Force. the question now, is which is stiffer - the higher priced K-force or the the heavier less expensive SL-k?

Yes, SL-K. Sorry for throwing that in. I don't really keep track of their stuff.

Exactly what I use.. DA10 crankset and record group. It fit's fine. Record C10 ultra chain works fine with it, no reason to use the DA but you can if you want.

Its a bit heavier then the record, no doubt. Big difference in stiffness? Depends on how you define 'big'. It was noticable to me .. I suggest to you to give a test ride to a setup using it and make your own conclusions.
