Hello!

You just don't see Campy 8spd long cage derailleurs too frequently on ebay. Anybody know of a good resource for older Campy components? Or if you have one of these that you want to get rid of, I'm your man!

Try a pre2001 9 speed. They were identical in geometry except for the pulley wheels. And with current practice of running a C9 chain on 8 speed you probably won't even need to change them.

I ran my Bianchi 8 speed with a 9 speed athena. You might look for a 9 speed campy triple but I ran the athena with 8 speed 13-26. Short cage.
