Hi, I have a new Campy Record 10 speed triple crank that came with 30x42x53 chainrings. I see that there is a Campy Record 30x40x50 crankset so I would like to get one of these 40 chainrings and put in on my crankset, giving me 30x40x53 chainrings. Has anyone else tried this? Any reason it won't work?

The cogs are ramped and pinned to work in matched sets. I'm sure it will work, but not perfectly. A 39 from a double might work just as well.

That's why I got an FSA 53/39/30 on my otherwise Campy Record equipped bike.
