what Campagnolo FD would this be?

I spent a rainy afternoon working through a couple of bins of bike parts, IDing them, photographing them, cataloging them
But one part - a Campagnolo Front derailleur - has me stumped.
I've combed the Velobase listings back and forth but nothing seems to match.


Most odd is the very narrow bridge on the rectangular "face".
and the thin stamped flange leading up to the binder bolt.

the only Campagnolo FD I can find that has both these features is the Olympus MTB FD.
https://velobase.com/ViewComponent.a...m=113&AbsPos=5

But all my bikes were road bikes. (though it is not inconceivable that someone would use an MTB FD on a road bike)
And the Olympus appears to be for a triple chain ring, with that dropped inner plate. Mine looks more like a standard double FD.

But I cannot find another FD like it, so it must be an Olympus double if that makes any sense at all.


note the very thin bridge on the rectangular face.

note this thin flange leading to the binder nut.

I tried a google image search with your picture, that led to some ebay listings. One mentioned it as an unknown model, but had a year for the bike it came off of (93/94). I looked at the 1993 Campagnolo catalog, and my vote would be that it is a Veloce model (note Velobase shows that model as 95-99, which looks different than from 93). The narrow bridge and thin flange match up at least.

+1 My first thoughts were Athena or Veloce, but Velobase doesn't seem to comprehensively cover these groups.

As above, Athena or Veloce from ~1993. They were pretty much identical save a couple of part numbers:

Veloce: https://www.disraeligears.co.uk/site...e_page_36.html

That's clearly the answer.
I guess I've come to rely in Velobase because it covers so much ground - makes and parts categories.
But that's alsonits weakness - it isnt 100% comprehensive.
For derailleur research i should default to Disraeli Gears. (Though i didnt know DG also covered FDs)

Wait, Disraeli covers FDs? How do I find those- are they hidden away somewhere?

My thought exactly (does DG cover FDs?)
But the other respondents here apparently found their infornation on DG.
It might be buried under the Documentation section.

Less about FD's, more about component catalog(ue)s: https://www.disraeligears.co.uk/site...ur_brands.html

I've ditched the copies I had of product catalogues from the early 90s but EAI were one of Campagnolo's main distributors in the US for many years and fortunately, they have retained a digital image in their libraries ...
