Campagnolo ergo shifter and repair
At The Cycle Clinic we can undertake service and repair all Campagnolo 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 speed ergo shifters.
8 speed models use the ultra type shifter which allows multiple shifts and a micro ratchet for the front derailleur. While replacement paddles and thumb levers might be a problem worn g springs and spring carriers are not. Upgrade to 10 speed is possible.
9 speed ergo again use many parts that can be taken from 10 speed ergos so again these can be repaired or even upgraded to 10 speed.
Escape type 9 speed ergos can be repaired too. Escape shifters use a ratchet and pawl system (escapement) so are very simple. Paddles from a 10 speed ergo can be used to keep them going. However it probably is not cost effective. The EC-VL100 and VL101 is the only current replacement ergo body for second generation escape ergo's (9 speed and 10 speed) but its a 10 speed part. So if you buy a right hand body your upgrading to 10 speed. The left hand ergo body is a straight swap for any escape shifter. Your 9 speed RD will work fine with a 10 ergo and cassette.
10 speed ultra shifters (BB system micron or it other names second generation shape) can be serviced. Replacement springs and spring carriers can rectify most shifter that have stopped shifting well or just stopped shifting. Replacement thumb shifters and paddles are also possible.
There are two current ergo body spares that can be used for mirage, veloce, centaur, chorus or records ultra shifters, EC -CH100/101 and EC-RE200/201. These are direct swaps for any shifter of this type. Any spares beyond G springs and spring carriers come from dismantled ergo bodies of these part numbers.
10/11/12 speed ultra shift repairs are generally served by replacement ergo bodies of which we stock them all. Repair is possible and altering an ergo to work with post 2015 11 speed cable pull is possible along with changing any of these ergo's to work with a different speed cassette. So 10 speed ultrashift ergo's can be altered to be 12 speed compatible. However the parts for these repairs or conversions come from dismantled ergo bodies. We do have however spare lever 2 and Lever 3's to repair ergo with paddles or thumb shifter that have failed.
