THINKING OF MODOLO MORPHOS IN LIEU OF DA SHIFTERS(1 post)

THINKING OF MODOLO MORPHOS IN LIEU OF DA SHIFTERStirider

I can never find comfort with my Dura Ace shifters while resting on the hoods regardless of which bars I use or where I place them. I find the flatter profile of Campi to be more comfortable rather than the concavity of DA. My options appear to be threefold... 1. I've tried filling in the top of shifters under the hoods with pieces of bartape cut to fit. This seems to help. 2. Trying Modolo Morphos shifters which appear to have a flat top profile like Campi and can be set up to work with DA. I believe these are quite light which is a plus and the cable routing on the bars is similar to Campi without the ugly shifter cables staring me in the face as with DA. I'm trying to garner opinions from riders who have used these. How is the egonomics and function of these? There is a new model available with carbon shifter levers like Campi for around $270 which looks pretty trick. 3. I saw an article once explaining a set up using Campi shifters with the Dura Ace drivetrain by re-routing the cable connection to the deraillieur clamps. This way I could have the best of both worlds... the lighter DA components with those beautiful Campi shifters. Any input is appreciated.
