Question on Kelly Take offs(8 posts)

Question on Kelly Take offskilimanjaro
Dec 12, 2002 6:31 PM
I have a couple of questions that were not answered on the kelly site.

1) Can the take offs handle Campy 10sp in index mode

2) Do you need downtube shifters on your downtube bosses to work with the Kelly take offs on your handlebar?

Thanks in advance

You can use campy 10 if you have campy 10 downtube shifters. You can't use Shimano downtube shifters with campy 10 unless it is in friction mode.

No dt shifters on the downtube bosses. They are moved up to the Take Off.

1)I wouldnn't know why not. 2)You take the shifters off the downtube and replace them with cable tops. I had 2 sets of kellys.Gave one away and the other is in the bottom of a junk box.In MHO they offer nothing over barends and and were much more awkward to use.
Want to sell the set you're not using? nmOldEdScott

The "Take Offs" are just a bracket that you mount down tube shifters on that are compatable with your drive train. I used this setup on my cross bike this season and REALLY liked it. To me, it is very efficient and ergonomic. Also, the down tube shifters are less expensive and more durable that STI.

Does anyone know where I can find 10spd dt shifters for campy, or will Campy barends work with Kellys as well. I can't seem to find any online sources

Also, will the ergo cable set include enverything I need to set up the Kelly take offs with the dt shifter.

Thanks again

the QBP only list 10 speed campy barends.Shiamno barends work with kellys,but I don't know about the campys and if they have some kind of unique mounting system.I have some suntour barends and the mount is unique and works with nothing else.You need cable,housing and cable stops,all of which I think is in the ergo cable set.
