I'm wondering if the Record triple BB is compatible with the Racing Triple crank? Looks to me like it should be

A friend of mine just built a new bike with the Record Triple, he had been riding the Racing T triple. I just asked him if the bottom brackets were interchangeable and he said no, they have different lengths and the cranks are shaped differently to match. Probably has something to do with marketing.

While the Record Triple BB is not compatible with the Racing Triple crank, Campy now offers a symmetrical 111mm Record BB which is marketed as the Record Track BB. It has the triple bearings and the carbon shell for light weight. I installed one and found it vastly superior to the Racing Triple BB which is really a Daytona or Athena. Check out Branford Bike section on BB's for explanation and details.
