Anyone running Campy 9speed DT shifters?
I'm having a heck of a time getting my setup dialed in.
I have 3spring Record DT shifters and the correct 9speed index gear for them. They're shifting a Racing Triple group. The front shifter works as any friction shifter should. No problems there.
The back shifter just doesn't like life. At all. The RD, cassette, and crank all worked flawlessly with a pair of '97 Ergos. If I set the shifters with an acceptable amount of initial cable tension it shifts two cogs on the initial shift. Dialing the cable tension back to produce a one cog shift results in excess cable slack. And even then the remaining 8 shifts just aren't clean, with varying degrees of shift misalignment.
Has anyone successfully completed this conversion?
