    Campy Brifter repair

    I have a buddy with 10sp QS Veloce brifters on his cross bike. The left shifter shifts to the big ring but will not stay there. I assume this is a broken stop or spring. Anyone have a link or advise me to which part I would need to get to fix it?

    Yes. As mentioned above the derailleur will shift the chain to the big ring....but the shifter will not hold it there. As soon as you let the shifter go it returns to the small ring. A shifter problem to be sure...I can't find an instruction PDF or link that confirms which part needs replacing.

    I *think* it's the g-spring. Campy dealers should have them.

    here are a few links

    The only other links I could add to tuz's post are:

    Rebuild Ergo Levers
    Zinn on Ergo

    The Campy only link pretty much describes the whole process. How many miles on the levers? People seem to get about 10k miles on them before rebuild is necessary.

    I sent my right brifter to Branford for a rebuild a few years ago. I came back all fixed and I've been riding it ever since without issue.

    Get a cost estimate first. Between the parts , labor and shipping you might find it just as cost-effective to replace the entire brifter. Campy Ergo's can be rebuilt but, unless you do the work yourself, the cost may be very unattractive.
