That's really pretty stuff!!!

I have one piece of Campagnolo equipment- a triple crankset- it's really pretty beat up, I think the chain rings look "cheap" and I don't think it's particularly high end. I was going to give it to someone- but they got too impatient, so it sits.





It isn't exactly a Campagnolo piece- but I have an Avocet triple that I think is pretty neat, and awfully pretty.

That is something! It looks like part of a watch movement.

I put the drilled RINO rings on there- but even the drilled arms are cool. I think it's capable for 144-110-74 BCD rings.

Edit:

oops- 144- 102- 74

You are absolutely right, it is a "stretch" but actually still within the cage/angle rule as long as you don't go big-big. It was a compromise to keep it working when on the little ring up front and still work well/ok in all the middle gears. Did very well all the way around and won't stay that way.

Whats the arm length on the Campy?

An Avocet is on my watch list, very elegant and obviously very well up to the task as they were a go to rando/brevet/touring crank for a long time by many very serious riders.

Are there longer cage derailleurs that would allow you to have a longer chain?

I think I remember there are differences in Campagnolo pull ratios between speeds, so I don't know a cool looking 6 speed Campagnolo RD is replaceable for a shorter cage, or not quite as cool looking 8 speed...

Best, Ben
The 1996 Campy catalog says it takes the same bottom bracket as the double, which I think was a 111 Campy taper. I generally have been using JIS 107s with them and that works for me, but 110 might be better. For the bike with the Nuovo Record and triplizer I had to use the longest spindle I could get, which was a symmetric 122.5.

170!

I've been cautioned about the Avocet/Ofmega triples having a tendency to break around the pedal hole. I'm not a particularly strong rider, and this is on an errand/commuter bike- but I do look at it much more frequently than I have to.

On the other hand- after stripping the anodizing- even with the deep scratches on my example- this crank looks amazing when it's shined up!

Maybe, don't really know, this was temporary, although not switched back yet. The chain was about as loose as you would want it to be when on the small up front while still being ok for the rest of the time. I think that's the longest cage readily available and really does work very well 90%+ of the time with this setup. The cassette that normally lives on this has a 27t low and works perfect so no need to struggle beyond the setup I have now.

@trainman999, I really like both of those Paramounts. The newer Record triple crankset in particular is on my wishlist. Very nice.

The original Campy Gran Turismo RD was replaced by a Shimano Crane at some time in the distant past. A Schwinn Letour-branded Crane became original equipment for these in '73.
If you wanted to stay Campy within a reasonable cost, you could convert a Nuovo Record using one of the Soma long cage kits. Polishing the cage so it matches the rest of the derailleur is a piece of cake.
