I stumbled upon this image of a Sugino crank and it reminded me of the popular Ritchey Logic crank. Knowing that Sugino manufactured those Ritchey cranks I was wondering if Sugino also sold the same model under their own brand name. Does anybody have some insights on this specific model?

I believe those two are the same forging but I don't know the model for the version Sugino sold under their own name. There's a very similar one still in the lineup available new, the XD2 Compact Double arm set. It's not the same forging but is close.

  • isn't it the Sugino RD2, nath?

  • @Noise My recollection (only as someone who appreciates Sugino but isn't any kind of superfan) is the RD2 is a 130 crank only. The cranks in the OP's pictures are 110. Nov 20 at 22:59
  • Of course, you're right. I did a little image search and I'm sure it's the fabulously named Sugino Mighty Tour 2
