Even new chainrings can be bought without spending a fortune. Niagara and Ben's Cycle have Sugino 74/110/130 rings in the $15-30 range, depending on size.

If it's an option, the co-op or local bike shop is a great idea in this case, though. You should be able to test-fit chainrings and get the right bolts, nuts, and spacers to put it together. Trying to source those over the web can turn into an expensive guessing game.

If I do not find luck with the coop or LBS after a while I will go that route. Great, thanks!

Takagi Cranks

Great thread here! I know it's been a while since anyone posted, but I wanted to see if anybody out there has found scans of a Takagi catalogue kicking around anywhere online, preferably early 80's stuff. There are some great suntour and shimano ones out there, but I haven't had much luck finding Takagi specifically. I'm not sure if they produced anything other than cranks, so there might not be much paper to show, or much interest, compared to the bigger component manufacturers.

Anyway, they are my favorite cranks for performance and looks, if anyone knows any other information about them or the company I would love to hear about it. I have XT's on both my 84 Ross and 83 stumpjumper.

But usually that realization happens long after they're out of production or easy to find at a decent price...

See- the Sugino AT- about the very best there ever was. But about as common as any ordinary decent part.
