Campy 8 spd shifter replacement options - help!(2 posts)

Campy 8 spd shifter replacement options - help!capecodsteve
Aug 17, 2003 6:13 PM
My Campy Stratos shifter finally bit the dust - the rest of my drivetrain is in great shape (I've replaced parts over the years). What options do I have?

1. Buy used shifters (about $160 on ebay)
2. Buy new shifters and replace the cog with an 8 spd cog (about $180 for Centaur shifters and the cog from Branford Bike)
3. ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Campy Stratos is about the same level as Shimano Sora(or less)MR_GRUMPY

Go with the cheapest Campy shifters Branford has that can be converted to 8-speed.........Or keep it 9 speed and get a new back wheel and cassette.(and chain)
