Look a little closer. The arms are a mis-matched pair, but I'd bet they are new. The flutes on the spider arms are shorter to allow for the additional inner ring, so it's likely those holes are factory done. And I think you're mistaking a blade of grass for a FD rub on the back of the right arm, enlarge the pic and see. They look pretty pristine to me.

No chicanery, and no I'm not the seller.

The seller claims this Campy NR Strada Triple crankarm set is OEM and this does not appear to be the case. The right crankarm is modified by having holes drilled out , but the drilled-out fluting that identifies it as Campy OEM is not present. The seller claims these crank arms are "brand new", but the right crank arm clearly shows front derailleur rubbing on the back of the crank arm. Even the left crank arm laser etched style does not match the right crank arm.

I just thought I'd give a warning to newer CR members, you have to watch out for the ebay sharks that try to feed in the Spring!
