My father today left a box on my doorstep, and inside was an old crank--a Sugino "Mighty Tour" in decent-but-used shape, 52-36t. It looks like a very nice crank, actually, but I'm hard-pressed to find much information about it on the internet, much less know where to look to get a 44t or 46t ring to put on the spider, since that is the size range I have tentatively chosen for my single (Rohloff) ring. What little I have read suggests that this crank is pretty fondly remembered. In any case, it *looks* the part, and it looks like it would be a good fit for the 'semi-classic' lines of the Mercian I'm building up.

Any info or impressions on this crank are welcomed.

It was a fine item in it's day. I believe the CW's are 130bcd. Standard for most road cranksets of today. It is compatable with most any square taper BB design. It is worth saving.

Thanks much.

It's 110 mm bcd; I'm still looking for a nice ring to toss on it.

Go to the on-line catalog. They carry the Sugino XD crankset and lots of rings (at reasonable prices) in the 110/74 size. Note that those chainrings are for 6-7-8 speed systems. Not narrow enough for 9/10 speed chains. But that is a good thing.
