Ofmega was an Italian component maker that thrived in the 1980s and 1990s, though it history predates the 1960s. The firm made parts of almost every quality, from inexpensive consumer components to items suitable for professional competition. The firm did a lot of private-label manufacturing, making items for Avocet, Colnago, Bianchi and others.

Its high-end parts are as well-made as any in the world and deserve serious consideration.

Its demise is as difficult to piece together as its origins, but the firm looks to be a victim of Asian competition, and folded sometime about 2005.

Part# CK-20

Ofmega Super Competizione cranksets are the equal of Campagnolo Nuovo and Super Record cranks in fit, finish and function. Our set has 170 arms and 42-52 rings. The bottom bracket is 36 x 24 Italian, but we can come up with another compatible bottom bracket if you wish to fit this crankset to an British or French-threaded bike.

Ofmega and Bianchi had a long-standing relationship and several of Ofmega's cranksets were branded "Bianchi" as original equipment for Bianchi bikes.

We believe this set dates to the 1990s. Bolt pattern is 130. Rings are 42-52.
