Does anybody have any experience with the Campy Racing Triple crankset? Is there a enough improvement to justify replacing a Veloce triple crankset with Racing Triple?

I'm interested in the difference too! I'm currently running a Veloce triple crankset with a "T" rear derailleur. The weights for the cranksets are very close - Veloce triple is 731 g and the Racing T is 735 g. I've heard that the Veloce is stamped while the "T" is cold forged. The same source told me that this make the "T" crankset "stiffer". Can anyone explain what cold forging means? I'd appreciate any other insights or clarifications...

I've got the Campy "racing" triple on one of my bikes. The cranks are very nicely machined and work good. The only problem I've had is overshifting to the big ring and throwing the chain off. This happens if I do a fast/hard upshift while the chain is in one of the smaller cogs of the cassette. I'm not sure if there is a solution to this problem as the der stop is adjusted just enough to have no rub will in the small cassette cog. Strange..... perhaps someone else can shed some light on this issue. Other than than minor issue I like the setup. BTW: I doubt there is any measureable performance difference between this crank and the "cheaper" cranks. Dollors generally just buy nicer fineshes. I don't have this overshift problem with my Record setup. Maybe a flexy BB problem with the triple????

good rides JohnG

i have got 9RT on my cross bike - 30/40/50. Never tried Veloce, but I can tell you that the RT is the business - smooth, slick, never missed a shift. Hard to see how it could be better.
