Campanolo spare parts

I was about to order derailleur pulleys from Ochsner International, a campy vendor out of Illinois. Thought I would check and see if any of you have dealt with them in the past. Thanks for the input. Lp

The Campy SR pulleys that I have are nothing special, bronze bushed, I think; if you're hung up on authenticity, then you gotta have 'em. I have some Suntour ones that have sealed bearings, and they spin more smoothly. They show up on eBay frequently. I'd like to find a set of the old type with loose ball bearings. Had those on a Huret derailer a long time ago, and I thought they were cool.

They are the real deal. Originally a distributor. Now the GP can order from them.

Ochsner must roll their Campy stock around in pixie dust or something because they are consistently the most expensive source of NOS. I would try Yellow Jersey or Classic Bicycle Parts out of Florida, or even Ebay before ponying up the dough that Ochsner wants.

Ochsner

I bought some Delta brake pads from Ochsner and they actually had the best deal I could find. Shipping was fast. I would definitely use them again. They seem to have parts I can't find anywhere else.

Yeah, most of the prices are good. I don't know what you bought from them.

Folks, the exchange rate is very favorable to buy overseas right now.
Campy Veloce crank set 19.50, matching BB 35.00, brake calipers 19.99.
Campy Mirage FD 9.99, RD 21.50, Khamsin wheel set 118.00
Ergo 9-sp brifters $100. Not a bad setup for approx $300.

But I'll check Ochsner on brake pads.

I just ordered a FD from them. Great price, though shipping was a little pricey, and they got it here fast.
