Has anyone used tis crank and what do you thijnk of it? Will these cranks run smoothly with Shimano 9 speed or Campy 10 speed? Can these cranks be bolted onto Shimano or campy chainrings?

FSA told me they make Shimano and Campy 10 spd. carbon cranksets.

I've ridden Campy and DA FSA carbon cranks. I love them both. They come with chainrings already. I unfortunately sold the Campy ones a long while back before I got another Campy rig. I still use the FSAs on my DA rig and love them. I understand they can be had for $260 new now sometimes. Regular price is $300.

When your FSA chainrings wear out can you attach the FSA crankarms to a new replacement Dura Ace or Record chainring?

I really don't know. It would be easy to check out with visual inspection. I'm sure you can call or email FSA as well. If not, I'd guess they're easily replaceable through FSA.

Could you install an FSA crank with a Shimano splied BB and then use Campy compatible chainrings or would the difference in spindle length between the Shimano splined BB and a Campy BB make the ramping of the shifts impossible?

If you want to use a Shimano FSA set with all else Campy, you'd have to find a proper spindle length, if it is at all available. I'm not sure it is.

Keep life simple. Go with the FSA Campy setup and Campy BB.

Now that you mention that, I remembered a friend who did that. He has the Specialized Festina sloping top tube model, D/A bottom bracket, Zipp cranks and Campy drivetrain. So he did save weight in the bottom bracket. Don't know if it will work with FSA, but it did with Zipp, he has been running it 8-10 months. Oh, and yes is a real weight wennie, the is bike is below 15 lbs and he is looking to crack 14 lbs.

one guy I rode with today mentioned that Profile's cranks (admittedly they don't look as sexy as FSAs) are Shimano splined and have interchangable spiders. if you can get the correct length spindle you can run Campy chainrings on them. I wouldn't pretend to know how the chainline would work out, though.
