Whatever happend to ultrashift levers for veloce and centaur?

long story short, my right ultrashift veloce 10sp thumb lever is broken and I can't seem to find any replacement ultrashift levers.
all I can find are the crappy and inferior powershift models.

or alternatively, I need a store that sells the thumb lever that sells and ships to canada.

Yes, Powershift sucks. That's why I bought extra sets of 2010 Centaur shifters for future use.
Probably tough to find now.

Ebay ?

That one's a 2009, so it might have the "mushy" shift feel.

Its components are not exactly Italian, now.
The new factory for their lesser groups is in Romania, to cut overhead/ labor costs.

can your LBS contact their distributors, and special order the part?

well, that depends on the severity of the damage, now doesn't it?

Hopefully it doesn't cost too much, otherwise I guess I'll just settle for a PS model.

In 2009 they discontinued the small parts and your problem became an issue which could only be fixed with a new shifter unit. Campagnolo sells those sans mounting hardware, brake blade, and hood. Part EC-CE200 (A) and EC-CE100 (C) for alloy and carbon respectively.

Bikeman has the carbon assembly for $95

carbon http://www.bikeman.com/LD9083.html

the alloy version seems to have disappeared.

You can still buy a new Ultra Shift pair for not a ton of money. Probably not much more than you'd get one side for: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-Ca...#ht_2047wt_952
