The standard Nuovo Record FD works surprisingly well on a triple. I discovered this when I bought a Matt Assenmacher touring bike from Tom Sanders. I has an NR front with an Ofmega triple and shifts just fine. I don't think there was a Campy triple-specific FD corresponding to the Rally RD. An excellent triple-specific FD of the era was the Simplex SLJ triple version.

Subject says it all. Got a great NOS rear mech (Rally) from Nick at Campy Only, now I'm looking for a front. I'm not bargain hunting.
