I have a bike on order with Campy triple 30/40/50 front chainrings. Can I later change to a 42 middle or 52 front without affecting the FD?

Thank you and regards

If you go to a 52 big ring, you'll probably have to move the derailleur up a bit on the seatpost for it to be positioned correctly for the larger diameter ring. You'll want to make sure the derailleur is adjusted correctly and functions smoothly once you've done that. Other than that, sure.
