I need an 8 Speed Campagnolo derailleur
 
Hi all,

I need an 8 Speed Campagnolo Mirage derailleur & Cable for my road bike. As technology has moved on to 9 & 10 speed I'm having problems locating one. I live in the UK, Garstang.. Lancashire..


Would a 9 speed mech do the job?

Any help appreciated..

I think the early 9-speed Campy RD's had the same actuation ratio as the 8-speed. I don't know how to tell the difference. I think the change was made in 2001. You could ask at CampyOnly.com.

Thanks,

I'll take a look

The info posted by Al is correct. Any 9s RD pre '01 will work. I'm using a Chorus 9s on my 8s Ergo drivetrain. 8s were too hard to come by at a reasonable price, at least at the Record/Chorus level.

Do you need the whole RD or just parts for one you have? I have one that is broken...

I have a 1992 short cage 8sp Chorus I used for a few years (approx 11,000 miles). It's obviously used, but it's well made and am sure it would easily last another 10-15,000 miles. I'll give it to you if you pay the shipping.

I just need parts as the whole thing isn't a total write off

According to the United States Postal Service website (usps.com), a 1 lb first class package ships to the UK for $10.76, 12 oz for $9.04. The Priority Mail International Small Flat Rate Box (6 - 10 days) is listed at $12.95. Your choice. If you want it, try sending me a private message and we'll work out the details.

Ah. That's what's broken on mine. Did your chain jump into the rear spokes and pull the derailleur in with it, too?

Yep,
Thats exactly what happened and threw me off in the process!!

Now I'm using a Dog fang chain deflector on my Record 10 speed bike. Just in case the chain decides it wants to jump off the inside chain ring. I stayed up, I hope you weren't too hurt.

Just received a sore shoulder and ankle. I was lucky as I was thrown into a hedge/grass verge. If I had gone the otherway I would have been under a truck!

By the way what is a Dog Fang sounds a good investment? Would I be able to fit one on my 8 speed set up ?
