Absolutely. 👍 I have a set, with titanium chainrings & bolts, that I keep transferring to my current bike, whatever that is. XT/Ultegra grade class. 😎

XT Class!

Back in those days, XT was Shimano's top of the ladder for triples.

As awesome as the M730 was (and it was the XT crank for around 8 years or so!), the Sugino AT was the cat's pyjamas- however, I think the FC-6206 was prettier and probably closer to the elegance of the Sugino AT.

In any case, any of the 110/74 triples at this level were "good stuff."

The difference between the 2 pulleys is a polished metal ring/plate under the 3 rivets. The pulley body/teeth are steel on both RDs in that picture.

Yep, it's the plastic ring that is busted up on mine.


I seem to recall that I was unable to fix mine, perhaps for another reason or because the pulley is proprietary.
