I bought this Shimano 105 chainset to replace the stock Vero on my Felt Z85, its like a new bike, so much more responsive and just feels smoother, well worth the money.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I got the 165 as I found my knees were getting sore with the standard 172 cranks, I don't get sore knees now. Well worth the money as getting shorter cranks worked for me.

Excellent

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Bought this crankset to replace the stock FSA one on my Bianchi Nirone, I had already fitted the shifters and derailleurs and this crankset finished off the upgrade. The set is stiff and solid with good design and appearance, certainly a positive upgrade.

A Good Idea That Works

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
I bought this to replace the FSA Gossamer 53/39 on my new Fuji Roubaix 1.0. Not only has it given me better gearing, it both looks good and has turned the entire drive-chain, including my pedals, into a Shimano 105 number. I'm very pleased with the outcome!
