I was wondering if anyone has used these levers and what you think of them. Looking to ditch the veloce on my derosa and am thinking of a no campy/shimano bike, already have one of each. thanx in advance for any opinions. Russ

DON'T DO IT! I have Mavic Mektronics which use Modolo for the front derailer. They work OK, but they are nowhere near the standards of Shimano, Campy, or the Mektronic rear der. If you want to go that way, go Mektronic! Check around-you might find them cheaper (about $800 for front and rear retail) than retail. They work great. (Except for the previously mentioned front.)

I haven't tried them, but I have been tempted to--probably would have, except I scored a set of Sachs New Success levers (Campy-style levers with an 8-speed Shimano drive train).

You'll hear from people who love 'em or hate 'em, there don't seem to be any middle of the road opinions. BTW, if you take a look at some British or European places, you can get a pair for less than $80, which makes them an extremely attractive alternative to C/S.

i have a pair on my cannondale, with a shimano 600 8-speed rear deraileur and they work well except when there is a large amount of strain on the chain(i.e. big gear climbing),
