Why are you pissing in the wind here? Just ask on CR. Pretend you think it's pre-1983.

Note that it's not marked with the "T," as characteristic of Gran Sport cups. Only the later stuff from the 1980's seemed to pop up with that T mark.

Frankly, it's probably just another one of Campagnolo's inexplicable running changes which make no sense to anyone but the person at the factory who dreamed up the symbol in the first place.

This post seems to have gotten sidetracked, but from what I see, only the Triomphe BB cups have the triangle "T" on the bottom brackets cup; it is on both cups BTW. The 1986 catatog introduced Triomphe and Victory. As you can see Triomphe has it's own bottom Bracket while Victory is shared with Gran Sport



My opinion is Campagnolo placed the triangle "T" on the Triomphe to differentiate it from Gran Sport and the later cups with the silver spindle Victory BB which appear to have more pronounced markings, looking even more like Triomphe cups without the "T".

BTW, I think its the less thread fixed cup (left side) is the anomaly as it looks more like the Gran Sport of the 50's and 60's. That lip on the bottom I think disappeared until the later MTB components of the 90's.

Gran Sport (ebay)


later Victory (ebay)
