Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Oh.....I thought I had solved the problem. I didn’t know the s in sti stood for Shimano!! I shall call them ergo levers from now on. If I set the FD as if the 50 were on it then I would probably have a problem with the small 28 chainring. To be honest I go everywhere on the 38. I have booked the bik...

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Hi All, I think I have solved my problem. I spoke earlier to a very knowledgeable chap at Condor Cycles in London who has told me the problem is to do with the small chainrings I put on the crankset 48/38/28. The front mech is too low and not in the optimal position to push the chain onto the 48T. H...

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Hi De Sisti, I have sent you a private message with my address re your Campag front mech. Do you still wish to sell it? If so, can you let me have your payment details. Many thanks and kind regards, Elaine

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Well for that price I am certainly going to give it a try, thank you very much. How would you like me to pay you? I can do PayPal if you PM me your details or I can send a cheque, whichever you prefer. I will PM you my address De Sisti. Kind regards, Elaine.

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Thanks De Sisti, how much are you looking for it please? Will it fit my 31.8mm downtube do you think? Kind regards, Elaine.

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Thank you for those tips gentlemen. I will start with the cable rerouting and I also have another FD mount which may just give me extra travel. I really hope one or both together may be the simple answer. I bought the bike to use as a lightweight tourer and I really don’t care what components are on...

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Thanks for that. I have spent a fortune on getting all 10 speed Campag Veloce parts because that was what I was told would work. I have a cyclist friend who I will get to read all your very helpful posts and he will hopefully help me sort it out. The Veloce FD does not appear to be the same one as I...

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Thank you for your posts. It was suggested on the ‘wanted’ section that I put these pics on which may help. The bike mechanics...2 from my LBS, 1 from a well known bike shop countrywide and another from another LBS are fed up with seeing me and the last one said ‘that’s the best it will work until y...

Re: Campagnolo triple 2001 era front mech.

I have done as you suggested Slowster and put it in the bikes and bits tech section. I will upload those photos as they could give more info than I can explain. Thank you so much for your input, this is such an ongoing saga that I feel perhaps I have missed something very basic, which maybe the pics...

Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Hi All, Can anyone help me with a Campag triple incompatibility problem please? I have posted in the ‘wanted’ section on this site a request for a ‘Campag triple front mech’ to work with some Campag Veloce sti levers. The outer chainring is a 48T and the problem is the mech is having trouble shiftin...

Re: Campagnolo triple 2001 era front mech.

Thanks for that Slowster. I had thought of putting it ‘out’ to the very knowledgeable ctc members but first I wondered if I could just fix it by getting the right era mech. I replaced the bb fsa mega one with an Ultegra one which all the mechanics said was ok. I questioned it as I thought the bb len...

Re: Campagnolo triple 2001 era front mech.

Yes I bought separately both the sti lever and front mech off eBay, which due to my lack of Campag knowledge is probably the cause (it seems), they don’t work together!

Re: Campagnolo triple 2001 era front mech.

Thanks for that 9494arnold but I have tried quite a few Campag front mechs and it seems the problem is I need an old 2001 10 spd triple one to match the levers. Very kind of you to reply.
