You should have tried Campy's Ergos before giving up on integrated shifting...

While our total tandem miles pale in comparison to yours and many other teams, we have over 50k tandem miles on Ergo's since '98 and never any problems: just a right lever shift disc & spring replacement at around every 10k - 12k miles keeps them working just fine.

I can't think of any reason including cost that I'd go back to down tube or bar-end shifters have been spoiled rotten by Ergo.
