On both my road bikes I have octolink bb and chainsets. I want a compact chainset but can't seem to find a octolink 10 spd one. At the moment I have a shimano 105 and a fsa 53/39 set-up and would settle for the new 52/36 if there was. If anyone knows where I could get one I would be grateful.

Do you mean one of these? I bought one myself last week.

Your only real option here would be to buy a 105 crankset and get the corresponding bottom bracket to go with it as Shimano don't make a 10 speed compact chainset with octalink fitting.

Ritchey used to make one but you'd be hard pressed to find a good one now.

Bottom brackets are inexpensive and easy to change so it won't be too much hassle and it means you'll be able to stay with 105.
