I'm putting new Campy 10-speed on an early 90's cro-mo frame with no downtube housing stops, only downtube shifter bosses. Would the Shimano STI housing stop adapters work, or is there a Campy equivalent that clamps on the bosses and has adjusters?
Or, is there a better way?
Thanks for any help.

Shimano STI downtube housing stops work just fine with any make brifters The cables don't care what they are anchored in and have no brand loyalty.
Campy makes the same thing but they no longer come with Ergo brifters and you have to purchase them separately. A set comes in every STI package so LBS's should have a surplus of them available at low or no cost.

Great question. I would say they should work fine. I ran into problems with my campy braze ons and the adapters because the screws were too short. Make sure they are long enough. I would see about finding a high quality component made of thicker plastic or metal. The cable stops probably aren't that important but you should at least have a part that you will have confidence in using.
