Was out on my bike the other tuesday when I noticed a metalic rattle...
as my bike is carbon it was a bit of a head scratcher...

when I got home I decided to fit differant wheels for my next ride, when I tried to change gear the ergos did not work, they are the latest design just over a year old..

I took the lever off the bars and all the parts fell on the floor - that was the rattle

I posted the lever and parts to Mercian on the wednesday for thursday delivery...

At 4pm on the friday Jeff from Mercian rang to say he had repaired it and it was on its way back, Camapgnolo say you cannot repair the 'new' levers and must buy a new one..

Well done Mercian well recommended !!!

Campag levers can be repaired. Look in the JD whiskers catalogue and there are lots of spares available.

Jeff is a top bloke. Helped me sort out my Strada last year after I had a head on with a white van. Bent hanger/chainstay all sorted within a week and pretty linking cheap too. Bike indexing all sorted as welll and the bike is a dream to ride. :)
