PROS: Easy to remove, Easy To Install
CONS: Star Nuts Are Free
PROS: Easy to take out, No movement, Strong
CONS: Not Visually Pretty, Plain Boring
But I decided to give this one a shot before giving up on the idea completely. It works just as well a star nut. And there's no star nut to go off-axis, or to interfere with cutting the steerer tube, or to get pushed down too far by accident, etc.
The only drawback is that it took some tinkering to find the sweet spot where it slides in but yet it grips the steerer just enough that you can tighten it. If too loose, it just spins when you try to snug it up.
PROS: Never Goes Off-axis, Quality Construction, It Just Works
CONS: Install Took Three Tries
PROS: Quality Construction, Allows Easy Fork Install
CONS: Can Slip A Bit
I'm still unable to get tight enough to bind the fork so I'm unsure how much preload you can actually get on this.
If FSA would just put instructions online with as far as installation depth of the compressor and torque ratings that would help a lot.
CONS: Lack of instruction
