Sugino is one of the oldest bicycle component companies in the world. The factory opened in 1910 in Nara, near Osaka Japan.

There was a time when Sugino's cranksets were everywhere. In the 1970s and 1980s, before Shimano's overwhelming dominance, Sugino cranksets were big sellers and highly desired. Sugino chainrings of the era were compatible with Campagnolo and cost a fraction of the Italian maker's product, making them the go-to replacement.

But, like SunTour and Dia Compe, Sugino was run over by the Shimano relentless steamroller. The company did survive, and though much smaller than in its glory days, still produces fine product. And, it is still run by the Sugino family.


Sugino Mighty Tour triple crankset, 170 arms, 34-40-52 rings. Used, $125.00

The Mighty Tour triple crankset was produced in the 1980s. It uses 110 BCD rings.

It uses a square-taper JIS spindle.

Ours is from early production, hence it does not have the cast-in "Mighty Tour" name on its arms.
