It has the very small outer ring bolt circle ala TA Cyclotourist or Stronglight 49, but I believe the inner ring is 151 BCD like the old pre-NR Campy Record. And the Zeus Criterium RD has nor more range than a Campy NR, so this is not a great setup for hills, at least for us old farts. But you could probably fit a complete pair of TA chainrings to the Zeus crankarm. +++++++++++++++ I tried substituting a TA or Stronglight on these Zeus cranks once upon a time, and couldn't get it to work. Sutherland says 50.4 BCD for both, so either memory fails or there was some other interference. In any case, I would use caution before spending lots of $$ and intending to marry up the parts.harvey sachs mcLean va

I had the same problem as Harvey w/ zeus cranks. The small Zeus inner BCD is different from TA/Stronglight. Only the Zeus ring will fit. SCOTT DAVIS ST.PAUL,MN
