    Campy shifters

    I would like to add braze-ons for shifters when I have my bike repainted this winter. My questions: (1) can Campy clamp-ons be converted to braze-ons? and (2) If not, does anyone have a line on some CHEAP braze-ons? Thanks.

    My Capo has Campag. clamp-ons and my Bianchi has Campag. braze-ons. The levers themselves are interchangeable.

    Good point. To clarify, all of my levers are the traditional Campag. Records, with the ornate knurled outer edge. Some of the plainer, later models may indeed take a different diameter or width of mounting boss.
