Just put a Campy Record Triple on my Serotta and was curious if anyone has any feedback or experience with this triple? Is it as crisp and definitive as the Record double? Initial ride indicated it may take some getting used to shifting front rings and also noticed some tinging noises that were not associated with double(break in?). Any comments or thoughts are aprreciated.

Saturday I rode with a good friend who just got his new Record triple going, had to wait 3 months for the parts, built his own bike, LS Classic. It worked well for him, he used every gear (30) with no problems. But he had been riding on Campy triple Racing T/Chorus. But I don't see how a triple can ever be as "crisp and definitive" as a double. The triple is just a more complex system.

I just ordered my Colnago MXL with the Record Triple and the 11-23 just like the article mentioned above. I tend to push a big gear at 70 RPM, but when my 190 lbs body tries to climb out of the valley around here, I really need the granny as a bailout. I am hoping that I don't need to trim as often as the article mentions. There was a update on the article stating that he realigned the derrailleur and most of the problem went away. Hopefully the longish chain stays on the MXL will help, he didn't state what kind of frame he had, but short stays can increase the chain angles. Now I just have to wait a week for it to come in. God grant me patiences and hurry.

That was on a 54cm 2001 C-40.

I think the front derailleur is very sensitive to the "yaw" alignment, with respect to the seat tube. Very minor changes make a big difference.

Mine shifts fine - as well as Chorus double (haven't got record). It's hard to imagine how it could be better.
