Another Campy shifter ? But real simple(5 posts)

Another Campy shifter ? But real simplePaulCL

On my right shifter, the aluminum pin that is used to open the brakes keeps sliding out. Not all the way, but enough that I feel the need to push it back into place dozens of times during a ride. It works itself out so that it is not in the hole on one side. I'm always concerned that I could lose it over a good bump or pothole.

I've tried to make it sticky by bathing the peg in gatorade or coke, but to no avail. Obviously not a life or death, or bad shifting problem, just a perpetual irritant.

Any suggestions. Can you buy new ones?? Should I completely trash my Record shifter over this $.50 item???? ;)

You'll have to buy the brake lever only to get the new part...Spunout

It doesn't look like the pin is available seperately.
You can still find just the pin and sleeveflakey

Campagnolo sold the QR pin and sleeve as a seperate part in '99. It is the same part for your '03 brake/shifter. Starting in 2000 that part was only available with the brake lever assembly (according to their spare parts books) but was still offered it as a spare part to distributors as late as '02 maybe '03. EC-RE045 for the pin and EC-RE241 for the sleeve. Have your LBS contact their favorite distributor to see if the can get it for you.
P.S.
Stay tuned for my next post when I review 7 speed SORA!!!!

How do you know all this? This doesn't seem like information you casually pick up.
