Subject: [CR] French thread crankset

I have a Stronglight 93 crankset marked 14 x 125. When I got it, it had*clearly marked 9/16 x 20 Campagnolo pedals. They tighten onto the crank * smoothly, evenly, and tightly. The pedal holes do not appear to have been changed--retapped; or if they were, no indication of such tapping is in evidence.

I am trying to play possibilities on this: the crank arms are mislabeled, the pedals are mislabeled (though I tried others on this crank), excellent job of retapping, or my bad eyesight (I am leaning toward this). Any experience from other members?

Thank you.
