I need some help deciding on a triple chainring set-up. I want to buy a 110/74 bcd triple chainring set-up for a Norcal Death Ride.

I was thinking of running it 48/34/24 rather than 48/38/24 because I'm assuming that most of my riding will be in the small and middle rings and I don't want to drop chains. I was going to use a DA Triple front Derailleur becasue it supposedly handle at 14T diffrence between the outer and middle rings.
