The six pin pattern doesn't mean much. It goes back forever. I never thought the arms were TA cause the square axle was so dopey but of Dale says it may be that's good enough for me. The rings and hardware on early Lamberts are definately not TA. Deep stamping of chainring #s, different finish, different tooth profile and an intermediate set of bolts tying together the large chainrings.
The steel stamped R mech had a short run because Suntour sued on this blatant ripoff.
My death fork broke the first day!!!! Had something to do with running into a parked car looking down at the @#$% shifter not working.
