Did Specialized ever rebrand sugino RD2s? Pull off from 2005 langster
I bought a 2005 specialized langster off CL a few months ago, and had pulled off the stock cranks to swap for new. I just threw the in a box, figuring they were crap stock parts. Just by chance, I was going through that box today and took a closer look at the cranks. Lo and behold, they have identical markings to a Sugino RD2 crankset, albeit some different model markings. The fit and finish is not up to par with a new sugino-branded set, but the forging looks the same. Does anyone know if Specialized definitely did rebranded sugino cranks? I say rebranded because on the Specialized specs page, they're listed as "Specialized Comp". Some pics:
I'm a bit confused here, and google searches didn't bring up a single case of sugino selling their cranks OEM.
