General Information
Private-labeled version of the Cambio Rino Criterium crankset, with 'Excel' logo in place of 'Rino' on the crankarm flutes. Excel was a US manufacturer of lower-end components based in Franklin Park, IL, supplying the original Schwinn Bicycle Co. of Chicago and Sears Roebuck & Co's line of Free Spirit bikes. When production of those mass-market bikes shifted to Asia in the early 1980s, Excel moved upmarket, contracting with Cambio Rino to produce Excel-branded versions of Cambio Rino derailleurs, cranksets and seatposts. The NOS example pictured incorporates a Shimano-like one-key release not seen on other Rino cranksets.
