Tightening Campy Ergopower Levers(3 posts)

The clamps holding my campy levers to my handlebars are a little loose -- they creak a bit when I climb. I understand there's a bolt accessible through the front of the lever to tighten the clamp, but I can't seem to find it. Any ideas how I could get at it?

If you peel back the hoods, you will see it. The bolt is just inside of where the derailleur cable is routed and takes a 5mm allen wrench. You can also stick the wrench in under the hoods from the front on the outside of the lever.
Got it, thanks...Velocipedio

Went out to the garage and though "gee, I wonder what I'll see if I peel back the hoods" and voila! Thanks. Squeaking is gone now.
