    Campy Ergo with Shimano 7 speed

    I've done a search on this, and have found conflicting answers. Here's my situation - my 1985 Serotta has 126mm spacing in the rear, Shimano 7-speed cassette (not freewheel), and a 7 speed era Dura-Ace rear derailleur.

    If I want to switch from Shimano downtube indexed shifters to Campy 8-speed brifters, do I need to replace anything else? Anyone had actual experience with this?

    I don't have personal experience with this setup, but I can tell you that it'll work if you use an old Campagnolo derailleur (pre-2001) instead of your old Dura-Ace rear derailleur.
    It is my belief that every person in this world has something to teach, and everything to learn.

    Thanks, looks like I'll be doing some Ebay shopping.
