Is FSA Gossamer good?
Overall the Gossamer is solid and reliable, but not flashy. Sort of like buying the black adonized 105 cranks. Did not feel anywhere as stiff as my Ultegra or D/A cranks, and not even close to the FSA Energy cranks I eventually purchased. I now have the Gossamer cranks on my 2nd bike.
