suntour arx

i have a fuji 1984 espree mixte that has suntour arx derailleurs. will the fd arx handle a triple crankset? i checked velo and they say designed for doubles, but i thought i would check as the rear is designed for 26t but fuji put a 30t on from the factory and it works fine.

I put an ARX derailleur set on my Trek 520 "winter bike". Its a triple. Quite honestly I bought a Suntour Touring set to replace them. It works so well, its still on there and I am riding the bike into the summer.

I am using an ARX on my Trek 728 half step triple. One of the best I've found. Also very light.
