How difficult can that be?

It's not unusual for some "bespoke" builders to ignore what the customer wants.....
However, in contrast to a comment above, I wouldn't put Steve Goff in this category. From my experience he will build whatever you specify, providing it's possible.

I finally got up the courage to find out why my '97 Campagnolo Veloce right hand brifter was shifting far too easily (almost on its own). When I took it apart, I found a cracked casting and a broken G spring. I phone Mercian, with part numbers, and got replacement parts after two days. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They knew about the alternative part number for the G spring.

I successfully re-assembled the brifter - so, good for another 19 years service. Should see me out!
