The relative affordability is definitely one of the things I love about Campy triples from this period. For my Sequoia I was going with a purely functional build. I just wanted something with a square taper triple of decent quality at a good price. I ended up with this for $80.



That was my second Racing T crank and really cemented my affection for this crank. Earlier this year when I was looking for parts for my Stella restoration I stumbled on NOS Comp Triple crankset and derailleurs (from three different sellers) for about $150 total.



BTW, @kcblair, what do you think of the King Cargo bottle cage? How much does it hold?
