Stronglight is a revered component maker most famous for cranksets and headsets. The firm started making cranks just before the second world war.

In the 1970s and 1980s the biggest French bike makers equipped their best bikes and teams with Stronglight cranksets. Most notably, Peugeot pro and semi-pro bikes were Stronglight equipped. Bernard Thevenet won two Tours de France using Stronglight equipment.

The firm is located in the French bike making capitol, St. Etienne.

Stronglight 104bis crankset, 170 arms, 52-42 rings. Used, $150.00

The Stronglight 104 cranks were produced starting in 1977 and through 1983. They were intentionally given a Campagnolo-like appearance, but they retained the traditional Stronglight 122mm BCD (bolt circle diameter). This allowed the mounting of a 38 inner chainring.

The 104 crankset came in two models, one with plain rings, and the 104bis, with the factory drilled rings, like our example. The Stronglight 104 came only in 170mm crank arm length. The crank arms are silver anodized.

The Stronglight 104 came only in 170mm crank arm length. The crank arms are silver anodized.
