Never had great success with FSA cranks, but honestly, that's mostly due to the chainrings... I bet if you replace the rings with something that shifts better, you'd be ok.

Can't speak to experience on the road or the road chainrings, but I have used that crank on cyclocross bikes paired with Thorne and later Wickwerks chainrings with no issues.

I have one that I have been using for about a year and it has been rock solid. No problems at all. I had an early K-Force crank that I hated but this one has been very good.

I have the SL-K Light crankset on one of my road bikes and I've had zero problems with it. I am running Praxis (50/34) chainrings on it, although the stock chainrings aren't too bad, but about 28 grams heavier. Crankset weight with the Praxis rings is a respectable 549 grams (175mm).

I had mine for 2 years and had no problems apart from a small creak but think that was just down to the BB30 frame but I never tried to fix it. The rings were fine for me. I think they actually shifted better than my Sram force setup that I'm using now. I did weigh the rings and think the big one was either 130 or 150 so weight savings to be had if you do change them.

Good light cranks for the money. Only issue I have seen with them is when someone man-handled the one key release.

What is the weight of a standard crankset? Compact seems to be in the mid-500g range. Would assume standard might be another 15-20g on top of that?

Would you guys go with the FSA SL-K Light crank or one of the first gen Hollowgram SI cranks? Hollowgram should still be slightly lighter, but I don't know about stiffness?

In terms of quality, workmanship, and future resale value, I would go with the Hollowgram Crankset. Opinion only.

I got a set of the Magic Motorcycle cranks not long after they came out (now on my beach cruiser), and was in love with that design for good..
