    Shimano FC-M442-8: Looking for "CR" number

    Hi all. I've been searching on the web for quite some time and can't find the "CR" number of the Shimano FC-M442-8 Octalink crankset. For example:

    That CR7275 number is used by several websites, so I thought perhaps it was linked to Shimano's system in some way. I can't find this info for the Octalink version of this crankset. Shimano has techdocs for it and it can be purchased from a few sites, so it definitely exists, but darned if I can find this info.

    Perhaps this was OE only? Can anyone shed some light? Thanks!

    CR7275 seems to a reference, probably useless elsewhere....what do you want to know specifically? FWIW 442-8 is the octalink version of this crankset, 442's are square taper and I think it's generally an OEM setup until someone sells it separately....

    What would be a decent crankset to upgrade to from this unit? I'm looking to change my bottom bracket and crankset on my FSRxc.
