    Veloce medium cage vs racing triple

    So it seems from all your useful comments that there nothing to fear with putting a 9-speed rear derailleur on my mid-eighties bike. What is the difference between the Campagnolo Racing Triple 9-speed and Veloce 9-speed medium cage rear derailleurs, besides price?

    Thanks

    The Campy Triple derailleurs have a longer cage than the medium cage. And, of course, the medium cage have a longer cage than the short cage models. The longer the cage, the wider the overall gear ratio you can run, because a longer cage has more chain wrap capacity.

    What size chainrings and freewheel/cassette will you use?

    The bigger the cage, the less the more gear combos you can run without wondering if you need a longer cage derailleur. The *only* downside to a long cage derailleur where you don't need one is ground clearance (if you need to care about that), and slightly slower shifting.

    ratios

    Medium cage will be fine, I want to run 14-28 and 42-52. I am wondering about Veloce quality with the crazy price differences I see.

    I am running a Centaur medium cage on my '85 Cannondale. The price was just a hair more than the Veloce at the time. The only issue I had was I had to trim the limiting spring so that I could turn it in enough to stop on the lowest gear.
