I currently ride an early Scattante (year unknown... I know they're often kinda meh, but it's one of the very early ones- built on a columbus airplane tube set), which was decked out by the previous owner with a full campy groupset with chorus derailleurs, calipers, and record brake levers. I absolutely love the componentry (esp. since I nabbed the bike for a scant $440), but the Record levers, despite being awesome for sprinting, are just kind of uncomfortable. They're super narrow and I just never liked the feel of them.
I recently borrowed a serocca for a few rides that had all ultegra/dura ace components and the levers were SOOOO much more comfortable over longer distances. I know that you can't just stick shimano on campy, but has anyone ever tried shifting campy bits with shimano levers? -I just love the ultegra (and really even the 105) lever ergonomics.
Cliffnotes: nice campy groupo w/ uncomfy levers, anyone know if I could replace 'em with shimano's?
