Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
My 13 year old lad has decided he's a roadie and has been using my old winter road bike. He can push the standard cranks well enough, but compacts are kinder to young knees so I bought this and swapped them out. I was impressed with the quality for this price. Very light and all the usual features. Easy to fit, straight onto the existing bottom bracket and a tweak of the front mech et voila. Only trouble is, he's now leaving me in his wake up the hills......... ;o)

Good enough product

PostedMarch 6, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I have the FCR 600 fitted to my commuting bike so this was a simple replacement, I have managed to get about 6,000 miles out of the original fitted item so time to change as was experiencing the chain jumping. Evans was the best price and good delivery so result all round

Surprisingly clunky

PostedJanuary 24, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: Unattractive, Uncomfortable, clunky change
Have ridden standard double for years, thought I would try this "compact" thing. Just can't get along with it. Admittedly it may be missmatched with current 8 speed shifters and cassette but more surprised by noticable jump between chainrings. Am changing to triple. Cannot fault Evan's service though - top class.

Nice low price chainset

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
I am going to ride in the mountains for the first time and needed a cheap compact crankset. This one delivers good quality and a low price, which were my primary aim.

Good val;ue for money and swift delivery

PostedApril 6, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good value
Cons: Expensive
This is a typical chain set in the Alfine series and selected as a replacement for an existing. Careful with the way you install it, becasue made from aluminum makes it vulnarable when the bolts are not properly tightened.
