Anybody have much experience with these?
I have acquired a very nice Campy Record OR front derailleur, but have never used one before. I've been collecting bits and bobs to build a frame that's been stuck in the U.K. (in theory, it's being refinished). It's some 8+ months overdue, but that's another story.
In my build plan for the drive train, I'll be running an old school Campy SR crank that's been tripleized by Elliot Bay Cycles in Seattle to 50/41/28. My current options for a front derailleur are either a Mavic 860 FD or this sweet new Record O.R. Obviously, the OR derailleur was originally for a mountain bike, but my triple will have a large drop from 41 to 28, given the 144bcd limits of the original crank arm for outer rings. So, it'll be a C&V road bike geared for old legs and big hills.
Anyone with experience with the Record OR front – or the Mavic 860, for that matter – care to offer their insights as to performance on a wide triple front, please?
FWIW: The rear will be a NOS 3rd generation Campagnolo Rally.
