    Want to swap: silver Ergo QR pins for black ones

    I've got a set of 9s Mirage levers that are completely black aside from the damn QR pins.

    Also I've noticed there are some Ergos that are mostly silver but with black pins, and AFAIK (I'm sure Drew Eckhardt will correct me if I'm wrong) they're the same part across all generations of Ergos.

    Anyone in the same boat as me but vice versa? I'd be happy to send the pins to you first and use a bit of dowel or something while you swap em and send yours...

    I don't know if black pins were ever made for Campy Ergos but my former otherwise all-black Chorus and Record 10-speed Ergos both had silver qr pins. It may be universal as I now have all-black Retroshift (Tektro) levers on these bikes and they also have silver qr pins. I see black paint or anodizing in your future.
