Campagnolo Nouvo Record Triple crank

This is related to another thread I started about a week ago with a Rigi bike. In that tread John Thompson pointed out that I had a Campy factory triple crank (which I had not realized I had). Thank you John.

John informed me that the Campy factory triple chainring only came in a 36 tooth with a 100mm bolt pattern.

Well, today I found the chainring, bolts and standoffs for the crank. I thought that I would take pictures of the parts and reassembly for those that might be interested.


First picture is of the 36 tooth chainring, bolts, and standoffs.

This picture shows the crank arm.
John Thompson pointed out that the factory drilled arms have the flutes end before the threaded holes. The chainring bolts are not installed yet.

This shows the standoffs that thread into the crankarms. They are chrome plated steel with a hex inside for driving the standoff onto the crank arm.


This shows the back side of the arms. There are little pockets milled into the arm where the standoffs sit.

Chainring in place and bolts screwed on.

Crank arm installed on a bike (still missing chainring bolts and dustcaps to be installed later)

Thanks for looking.

I recently installed the same on my Mclean - it was tricksy to figure out the bottom bracket situation. What spindle length did you use, I used 118mm. Also the SR front derailleur was fortunately accommodating. I like mine a lot, the small "bail out" ring is very useful!

Yes, these came with a special 36T granny, which works quite nicely in a half-step-plus-granny configuration, such as 50-46-36.

I think it is a 119.

Where did you source the bolts for the triple? I'm using similar ones from an Avocet triple, but it'd be nice to get correct ones.

They came with the cranks. I miss placed them for years and found them in a box in the garage this afternoon. It's my lucky day.

It is correctly called a Record triple with Nuovo Record rings. There is no Nuovo Record crank. Mine is a Record triple with Super Record rings. I don't know if they were ever sold that way, but I had the rings and it gives it a little different look.

the arms are several years earlier than the Rigi bicycle they were formerly on. framebuilder Jim Merz offered 31T and 32T inner chainwheels to fit this set.

They occasionally show up on eBay and go for $90+/set

Good to know thanks.
Nice looking bike. Were the cranks polished?

I will mention for what it's worth that after waffling for several months I'm now moving ahead a run of 42-tooth triplizer rings made for 144 bcd Record cranks (should also fit Campagnolo clones). Like the 122 bcd triplizer rings I've had since November, they'll let you mount any 74 bcd granny ring without modifying the crankset itself. Mounting will only require standard chainring bolts. I hope to have tested the prototype by April and have finished rings ready for shipment sometime in May. Shoot me a PM if you have any questions.

The crank is chrome plated.
