other than slightly increased Q factor, anything I should be aware of, comparing them to Ultegra or Dura Ace?.

They will be better overall from the ones you have right now. They are the best cranks you can get. Trust me!

So what BB attachement method do they use? Are we talking square tapers (which enlarge over time) and the old style BB?

The ones I have use a shimano spline. I'm using a dura ace bottom bracket. I personaly think the f.s.a. cranks are great and they look good to. Never had any problem with them.

Did you have a problem with a Shimano unit or was it just the looks?

No.. I didin't have a problem with the shimano unit . I bought the f.s.a cranks because they were a bit lighter and I was looking for a set of carbon cranks. They seemed to be better than zipp or profile ,also they were the best priced .
I've had the cranks for over a year and at the time I bought them direct from f.s.a.,at that time they were selling the road cranks direct,and at a cheaper price than some stores that were selling them .
since then I don't know if they still sell the road cranks direct or if the price has gone up(I bought them at a intro price). But they were worth every penny.

I saw a message a while back at VeloNews that sounded like it was from someone at FSA, that they will be releasing a new road crank that has a carbon fiber spider and has the ISIS spline pattern.
