My Veloce 8 speed Ergos had a button you pushed to allow the lever to go back inside the body. This gave enough slack in the cable to allow you to get the wheel out. Do yours not have this?
Thanks Mark I will check when I get home, is the button under the rubber hood?
You were right, sort of!
I had a check, my AVANTI levers (cheapest groupset back then I think) are much more plastic than yours, but they do have a similar method.
They have a plastic black dowel, which you push across (no fancy spring return....on my light weight racer brifters
), it then gives you a little slack on the brake cables, you can just get the wheels off, but it is very tight. The release on the calipers is more generous, and wheels can easily be removed.
Thanks for your help
Had another play tonight, and there is enough movement, so I will be searching for some suitable campagnolo dual pivots.
