Hi I want to change the FSA chainset on my bike which is:
https://www.thebikelist.co.uk/bianchi/i ... mpact-2014

To this:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Campagnolo-C ... SwpppcFikE

The older one is pretty worn. I take it will need a different bottom bracket, but is it just a case of taking the old one out and getting the campag one?

And what campag one would I need?

    Fitting a Power Torque chainset is no problem. However removing one is another matter. Without the specific tools for the job it is next to impossible. ( That is without using the foul language you will be using if you have to do it) The best place for a Powertorque chainset is on Ebay, leave it there.
    FSA get some bad reports. I have had several without a problem but I do not have thighs like Chris Hoy.

    HAHAH totally agree about the right tools thats £100 for the chainset advertised and goodness knows how much for the tools. Mind you once you have the tools its a simple job, albeit much more complex than HT2.

    I sold all my campag stuff and went shimano just for the ease of maintenance and readily available tools, spares and knowledge. (I do think the Campag stuff looks cool though)
