I read in the Velonews Buyer's Guide that Pinarello is supplying what they call a "compact" carbon crankset, with 53/34 chainrings. I can't find any info on this, even at the Pinarello website (except a picture).

Anyone locate any info on this? Is it made by an outside firm? Might be a great alternative to a triple.

You could also do this with any 110mm BCD "standard" drive mountain crankset by purchasing individual chainrings. Salsa makes numerous sizes including a 34 tooth and a 53 tooth for that BCD. An older square taper set of Race Face Turbines would work great for that and it doesn't have any granny ring mounting holes to get in the way or catch you chain if you throw it to the inside. Chainline might be problematic though.

yes the 110 BCD can do the job,just watch the chainline
Im looking to build A light set in either ISIS or spline BB

So I just got A set of Profile Design crankset with A 110 spider,going to run A 36/52 and something like A 11-26 in the back(shimano)for A climbing bike for steep hills.
Anyway Im still got to order the 52 ring,Im think "TA" they have A ring with pins for better shifting.
Also Raceface and carbonlord make some nice crankset available in 110 BCD

The Pinarello compace crankset is manufactured by FSA. It accepts chainrings from 34 to 53, though most front derailleurs wouldn't shift the maximum difference. When using the 34 Pinarello recommends using a 50 outer ring.
