Not compact, maybe later, but kind of evil looking :twisted: , expensive, +/- 540 gr

Have gotten in about 30 miles on the trainer on my new FSA Compact Pro 50/34 crankset doing some final tune-up (still raining here - first time on the road is tomorrow). Like it just fine with one exception. It definitely does not like to be cross-chained from the small chainring to the small cog. Chain rubs lightly on the big chainring when cross-chained. Chainline is fine. While I shouldn't be cross-chained in any real-world situation, this is my first experience with this. I had a Record triple and it did not suffer this problem in the 30 chainring and small cog.

Anyone else experience anything similar?
Just because you are not paranoid doesn't mean we aren't out to get you.
Those who ignore histroy are doomed to repeat it.
