    Campy Ergo shifter - brake lever replacement

    I broke my 9sp Veloce RH Ergo brifter, specifically the piece of the body that holds the inner brake pivot. I have the replacement body and am getting ready to transplant all of other pieces from the broken one. I found instructions on removing/replacing the shift mechanism at http://www.nuttycyclist.co.uk/cycling/ergo-rebuild.htm, but none on how to remove/replace the brake lever. Anyone done this?

    After some more searching I found the answer on yellowjersey.com; drive the brake lever pivot pin out with a small blunt punch. I'm still wondering if I will be able to take the shifter parts out as a unit or if I will have to undo all the springs, etc. and put them all back. Should be fun.

    You will need to remove the parts piece by piece. Make sure to have a exploded diagram available and be careful the springs do fly across the room.
