I came across the folowing message somewhere on this board, posted by Russ:

"They (the LBS guy's) can get all the tech manuals for Campy parts like the shifter rebuild manuals from Quality for free, or for $10 Campy will send them a tech CD that shows the specs and rebuild info for the last 5 years worth of parts."

So my question is, can a normal (non LBS) guy get a hold of such a CD??

Erik, what in particular do you need? I can either email it to you in .pdf format or just mail you the copies of the manual.

The cd has a bunch of diagrams in a bunch of languages for tearing apart and rebuilding things like the ergopower shifters. But the cd has all the years and models... you most likely don't need all that.

By the way, most of that stuff can actually be downloaded straight off campy's website... it's just nice to have the disc at the shop for days when the internet is down and things like that.

But search campy's site, and if you can't find what you need, post a message for me here and I will send you the rest of the stuff.

One thing, I will be away from my computer for the next 10 days. I am going on vacation. So if you can't find what you need, ask here for it in about two weeks.

OK? Hope that helps you out.

Thanks for the reply, Russ. It isn't that I need any of it at this moment, I just thought it would be nice to have such a cd. I think it would be cool to be able to see how all the stuff works on the inside and perhapse see what changes there have been over the last few years, that's all.
If I do need anything in the future, i'll just post a (new) message.

Thanks again, Erik.

download the .pdf files for the components you need and burn them on a cd yourself.

I downloaded the complete Campy instructions, all the Shimano instruction .pdfs, the manuals for my suspension forks and the entire Barnett Manual and burned the whole thing onto a cd that I use in my shop (on an old, cheap laptop.) Very simple, very nice.
