Campagnolo Hiddenset for Carbon Steerers?

Has Campy made a steerer wedge, not a star nut, for a hidden set that will work with a carbon steerer? The last thread on this topic was in 2010 and I read star nut only. Is this still the case?

Keep it! Never sell a good bike like this. I like your idea: "Then again I could add bullmoose bars, make it a relaxed coastal cruiser." Convert it to Single Speed or fixed.

I stopped using a computer a few years ago. I don't care about yearly mileage and ride the bike as a workout, daily with some rest days as needed. I found the computer to be a distraction.
