|I've broken the right hand one twice and now I just broke the left hand one. The internal bits I'm talking about. Campy's great because you can repair them, but I dont want them to break to begin with. How's shimano|
|they can brake too the rachet stops working- good waranty nm||the bull|

|I've only ever seen one warranty broken ergo, the other three or four were crash victims, from pretty solid crashes, too. The first 3 years I raced our entire team (52 guys and me) was on first generation (1992 - 94) Campag ergos incidentally, plus in '99 and '00 I worked for a Colnago dealer who sold mostly Campag groups on his bikes, and we've got four bikes in the house running C-10, so I've had some experience with them.
If you are wrenching too hard on the levers which I kind of suspect, the STIs will last even less long and won't be servicable. Cheaper tho.

|I've got 6 years on my Chorus 8 speed Ergos and they haven't missed a beat. I've also got 3 years on 9 speed Dura Ace without a problem. Some people are lucky and some aren't.
I like to think that Dura Ace levers are like a fine Swiss Watch. Very pretty, but if something goes wrong, you can't take it to Joe's watch repair to fix it. Campy Ergo levers are like a Russian made watch. If it stops working, you can fix it with a screwdriver and a hammer.

|I've been riding Campy shifters for at least 8 years and several different versions: Veloce, Daytona, and Chorus. I have never even come close to breaking a shifter and I have crashed about once a year.
I'm not sure I could break a shifter. How do you do it?
|maybe I shift a lot.||ishmael|

|that would explain the right one going, and the left one was sticking(they've been doing that lately) and I forced it.|
|solution: don't shift as often||Spoiler|

|My '99 Record right shifter broke twice in three years, so you're not alone.|

|No, and I doubt it has anything to do with shift frequency. Unless of course you shift about a billion times more frequently than the average joe. What model are we talking here.|
