So now someone tells me that there are two Athena triples. It would be nice to think that I have been trying the one for the 50 outer - not at home at the moment - but the fact that there are two is news to me.
I used 26/36/46 with a 10 speed Record Triple set up very successfully, the inner plate of the FD being quite shallow.
In fairness, it looks as if Campagnolo may have made a running change as on the B2B currently, they only list FD13-ATB3B.
Certainly on all the original technical literature, both were mentioned, ditto in the case of Veloce and Centaur triple and were certainly run that way as in this item from the clearance list:
0105012 CE TR BLK 10s braze-on front der Z52.
I can check with R and D at the factory, but not until January, unfortunately.
Having just read your earlier post a bit more carefully (mea culpa
) you suggest using the Athena triples with the Record Triple FD ... It "might" work but I think you might need to add FD-CE011, the front derailleur cable plate to extend the effective length of the actuator arm slightly.
You might see a bit of reduced service life in the LH lever as the spring tension on the FD in the case of the Record unit is probably higher than the "matching" Athena unit (TBH I don't have the figures for Record Triple vs Athena Triple FDs, only the RDs, so I can't give definitive advice) but you can probably help yourself a bit in that regard by making sure you have post Feb 2014 levers (where the cable bushing is white Delrin, rather than black nylon) and as ever with PowerShift, don't lubricate the levers once in use with mineral oil - this can cause premature ageing, softening and so eventually accelerated wear in the lever components. The Delrin cable bushes fix this problem for the cable bush and bodies with the revised cable bush also use a different material for the thumb lever but instinctively I'd avoid mineral oils in this area, where it's not specifically recommended.
If that doesn't work, there is a completely unofficial and DTTAHF workaround on a LH UltraShift lever (so that it will "hold" on the click stops that are there, but not normally used) which will give you some more options.
You could go all Andy-Hampsten-90s-retro and use a downtube shifter for the FD, if all else fails
