Nice bike, the wheels look like they could be worth half the asking price, !!Getting up steep bits is “a legitimate place”.
I see plenty of 1980’s and 90’s road bikes with triples, here’s one I Spotted online this morning.
Excellent, can't abide snobs of any type.... bike related or otherwise !I have a Campag triple 52 42 32 on my old 2003 Giant. Largest rear cog is 28.
Considering changing to 50 40 30.If I could find a 30 or 32 rear I would lower my gearing considerably.
Yes I am well into my twilight years and like you need all the help I can get.Triples May be frowned on in some circles , but I am not a proud chap.
I recon l could outrun a vintage bike policeman specially if they were of similar vintage to me. At least l could until a few days ago when lsomething squishy in my left knee went pop !I shouldn’t worry, if it help you and fits your riding style. The vintage bike police aren’t going to arrest you!
You are absolutely right, l was so busy envying the Bianchi l hardly noticed the triple. So l have just bought a Campagnolo Centaur triple for my build project. So now have the frame and the chainset and thats as far as l have gotIf it keeps your knees from exploding and the bike on the road, then go for it!
My little gaspipe Bianchi has a Campagnolo Mirage triple chainset which is a little bit later than the bike, but I think it can carry it off. I also fitted cheaper brakes with suicide levers for Eroica Britannia and, again, no-one arrested me for crimes against cycling.
On an aesthetic level, I think a lot of silver triple chainsets look 'light' enough to barely be noticed as triples, though I'm not sure I'd got for a black chainset as they just look more obtrusive.
I have and its entirely your doing lm happy to report ! It came to me in a flash, having been completely blown away by your "Eddy" project, l need to haveApologies I've not been following, but have you got a new project then?
