On What Campy Groups Can You Still "Dump" Multiple Gears?

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

On What Campy Groups Can You Still "Dump" Multiple Gears?

I've got a 2006 Centaur group on my race bike - and I love the multi up/down shifting ability. I know that this functionality has gone away on lower end groupsets like Mirage for 2007/2008.

What previous/current Campy groups have this feature? I'm planning on rebuilding my cross/touring/bad weather bike with Campy and want to replicate the feel from the roadie.

Thanks.

You can get the older centaur shifters used or new on some nos websites. I've seen them around and if you know what you're looking for, then you can find them.

I just bought a used set from a BFer and haven't had a chance to try them out on my pending build.

I think that the new (2007 +) Campy Centaur and below no longer have the ability to dump the cassette - Chorus and Record still do.
I just got my first road bike and wanted to go Campy - couldn't afford to go top level (nor did I need to really). My LBS is very Campy saavy - all the guys there ride and wrench it - so they recommended I get the 2006 Centaur for just that reason. My bike came stock with Ultegra SL but they got me a great price for a 2006 Centaur set-up (except got UT crankset) and I couldn't be happier.

I thought you should be able to replace the escape mechanism on any new shifter to make it dump multiple cogs. But from the factory Chorus and Recod are the only ones that have that option.

Hmmm...that'd be nice. I could get some beefy Veloce levers that would better stand up to the crashes in cross.

Any links to a procedure guide?
