No, Standard extractor thread is 22mm. TA Cyclotourist is 23mm. Old pre-1982 Stronglight was 23.35mm. The older double-ended Park extractors were 22mm on one end, 23mm for TA on the other. Unfortunately, a lot of people tried using the 23mm end on Stronglight. If they were lucky and the crank arm wasn't on too tight they got away with it, but a lot of Stronglight cranks were also ruined that way. For TA, get a proper 23mm extractor. Sheldon Brown and several others on the list sell them. By the way, Stronglight cranks made after about 1982 use standard 22mm extractor thread.
