I have the Stronglight Impact triple with 48/34/24 rings and I got it mostly because it came in the exact ring combination that I wanted. I got it from xxcycle.com.

It was worth it for me at the time and I still have it on the bike but xxcycle charged me about $20 for shipping and it took about 3-4 weeks to reach my doorstep.

If I were to do it again, I would probably just get an equivalent Sugino crankset from a vendor here in the United States as shipping would probably cost less and would certainly be faster.

The Impact Triple works fine though like all 3-piece type cranksets, it's laterally flexible and I get some chain rub against the front derailleur when I get out of saddle to sprint.

I don't know of any other 110/74 bcd cranksets.
