Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: not too many length choices
I bought this to replace an FSA compact double chainset on my commuter bike.
It shifts well, seems pretty rugged and I put it on my new bike when the old one was damaged in an accident rather than stick to the compact double that came with the new bike.
Overall it is a useful chainset, especially for commuting where you don't necessarily need the wide range of a compact double or the higher gearing of a traditional double. One point to note - it shifts well with a standard road front derailleur, but miles better with its paired cyclocross specific one.
