My wife and I have a fair number of miles on touring triples and mtn bike triples. We are closing in on 60 and looking at Roubaix/Ruby road bikes. Like many people our age we are only considering the Apex vs Triple versions. We are comfortable with the shifting of our old Trek 720/620's and our mtn bikes and Pugsleys. All triples. We have no ability to test ride a triple for the next several months but would like to get a bike ordered now if possible. One major reason for us to seriously consider the triple is a desire for simpler, tighter gearing while staying in the middle ring and a lack of need for double shifting. It's more of what we are used to. The question I have is whether triple shifting on a road bike is for some reason less accurate/reliable than triple shifting on a mtn bike? I don't know of any reason it would be so but have read so many times how road bike triple shifting is compromised. If it is simply the case that triple shifting is triple shifting regardless of road or mtn, but doubles just shift that much better...then we have no issue with a road triple. If there is some reason that shifting a road triple would be significantly different/poorer than shifting on a touring bike or mtn bike I'd be very interested to learn that. I'm assuming that "poor triple shifting" is merely in comparison to doubles and I'm guessing a Roubaix triple will shift just as well as a touring bike or mtn bike. Yeah? No? Thanks much.
