    Campy down tube shifter help

    Does anyone know if Campy made a down tube shifter that could shift 10 speed? Friction is fine. I was told that the older Record versions couldn't pull enough cable to handle 9/10 speed.

    the 10 cogs fit in roughly the same space as 9, so the older friction shifters should work fine.

    Several of the shifters I've seen for sale say not compatible with 8 speed, which is spaced just about as wide as 9/10. I was under the impression that anything that could shift an 8 speed spaced cassette could work on 10.

    Indexed shifters will be a problem because of the spacing between the cogs, but the distance from one end of the cassette to the other has stayed pretty much the same, or they would have to increase the current axle spacing from the current 130mm. So a friction shifter should work fine.

    Mavic had a downtube shifter that was infinately notched/ratcheted. Don't know about spacing for the shifts but, it would handle as many clicks as you had cogs. Maybe Ebay?
