I have a Trek 1.1 road bike which has an unbranded non standard compact chainset with 170 mm cranks.

The bike shop upgraded the chainset because the original stock 175 mm chainset was bent.

The 170 mm cranks are causing a bit of knee discomfort, so the bike is going back to the shop for 175 mm cranks to be fitted for free.

But would there be any advantage in upgrading to the FSA Vero chainset ?

Also would it work OK with the 8 speed Shimano 2300 sprockets ?

    I've just got back from the bike shop.

    They have done what I've asked, that is fitted the 175 mm cranks.

    Still would I be better off upgrading to the FSA Vero or Tempo chainset, and would it work OK with the 8 speed Shimano 2300 sprockets ?

    unless the current chainset is faulty/worn, i'd stick with it - imho the vero is not so good, it's an oem version of a basic fsa chainset, the rings are really flexy
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
