I might add that Stronglight model 93 (probably the one you have), will allow a wider choice of chainwheels, as small as 38 teeth, than the old Campy NR/SR, which couldn't go below 41 teeth. And Stronglight cranks did not suffer the cracks which sometimes developed in Campy cranks. I agree with Gilbert that these cranks are well worth keeping.

Hi all,

Daniel is correct. The TA tool side of the Park reversible tool will pull threads out of the old Stronglight. An old shop should have the tool so you have a cheapie source certainly if you pay them. I'd advise putting in a Phil (designed to fit) and keep the crank if the ring range is good for you as a well maintained Stronglight crank is as long lasting (and light) as your might find anywhere from my experience. They can polish up like a mirror too.

Looking around I have Stronglight (new and vintage) along with a few TA (Cyclotourist) cranks on everything I ride (6 bikes not including a few roadsters). The new cranks (Stronglight and TA) are hard to find but very nice as well.

I need a life man,
