    2nd generation Ergopower, where is it?

    Cheers!

    So, 3rd gen of Ergopower is currently on the market, 10 speed up to Centaur and 11 speed Athena, Chorus and Record.

    Where did the 2nd generation dissappear? Onto ebay, you can either buy 1st gen used/nos or 3rd gen new. Maybe here and there 2nd gen Xenon or Record.
    Every online store that I visit, has only the newest stuff. Who sells NOS 2nd gen Ergopowers? Nobody? Not even on local ads!

    If I could source them in Europe, would be nice. But... The prices are really silly. It seems it costs more to buy a pair of 1st gen Chorus 8 speed shifters than to buy brand new 3rd gen Veloce 10s??!?! I don't get it...

    Either people are still riding their 2nd gen campy equipped bicycles or they think it's not worth selling them? Anybody have any clue about this?

    Thanks!
    Pedal!

    I don't know much about campy generations.. is 2nd gen 9 speed?

    http://www.wiggle.com/campagnolo-xen...oad-lever-set/

    Are these not ergopower?

    10 speed?

    http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/pp/roa...-ergo/campgrss

    I see a few sets in there, says "in stock".

    11 speed is the "future", but 10 speed still has a lot of life left in it. 10 speed is what? 7-8 years old now? If people are riding around on 10 speed ergo power, it's on a 5-6 year old bike, which is probably still functioning pretty well. Figure if someone was gonna upgrade the shifters, they might as well upgrade the whole group... and if you're buying new campy groups to upgrade your current bike, you're probably gonna buy a whole new bike.

    Ask your LBS if they have an account with Euro Asia Imports in La Crescenta-Montrose, CA. They have NOS 2nd gen Campagnolo, but it will come at a price.

    I had a chance to buy 2 sets of 2nd Gen Ergo shifters, (Centaur, 10s, NOS) from a small firm in California, $150 apiece.
    Like an idiot, I only bought one. I just happen to like that generation better than any other. 2 years ago, it was plentiful.
    Now, not so much.

    My opinion is that since it can still use most new Campy-compatible wheels, you won't see people turning it loose very soon to go 11sp.
    It'll happen, but not all at once, a la "leaving Shimano for SRAM....."

    Ribble has Chorus and Record QS 10s sets as noted above.

    Ben @ velomine.com here in the USA has several GenII 10s options as well.

    Campy made GenII 10s Record sets up until 2012…FWIW.

    The NOS Chorus the UK sellers have is cheaper than most used I've seen on ebay. The kicker is the UK shifters are in the box with cables.

    Wasn't there a slight compatibility change somewhere a long the way? Not all 9s or 10s is the same?

    So said Campy…a non-issue in practice though. Main issue was supposedly with pre-2001 9s RDs.
