    Where to find Veloce 9-speed shifters

    Well, I'm way behind the times but would like to catch up. I'd like to replace my Shimano barcons and RD for Campy Veloce/Mirage/Centaur 9-speed shifters and long-cage RD. Anyone know where to find a good price on a new pair of these shifters? Seems like everything is 10-speed these days, but I don't want to buy a replacement chain and all the other upgrades. Thanks guys.

    If you can only find 10 speed, consider a JTEK Shiftmate. Supposedly will make 9's and 10's talk to each other. Might be worth a try

    I bet you can still get 9-speed Veloce shifters on Probikekit or RepartoCorse.com. Shouldn't cost that much.

    Yeah, probikekit has Mirage 9's. Use the kitbuilder and you'll get some percentage off if you buy two or more parts of the group.

    What are you going to do about rear cogs and your shimano freehub?

    I just got a pair of veloce 9's with 9s rear mech from Glory Cycles. It took about three weeks from order to delivery, but they didn't pull the patronizing "Why not just go to ten-speed" dodge most shops give you. The 9s stuff is still listed as current product on Campy's website. I'm sure that demand, and supply is pretty low.
