I have a set of Super Maxy cranks which appear to have a bcd of 144 have you ever heard such a thing!? I thought they were 110bcd or some odd size...

Most cranks of that era - early 80s were 144mm and 151mm preceding that. 110mm only started becoming as standard with the introduction of MTBs a few years later, before Shimano ripped-off 'compact drive' from Suntour in the early 90s.

Sorry I wasn't very clear; I haven't seen Super Maxi's with a 144bcd before :wink: But yeah you're quite right! Thanks.

Nice alternative to NR/SR particularly with the drilled rings
