I was wondering, surely Campagnolo must maintain something resembling an aftermarket supply of blocks for their older calipers? I can't believe these aren't still available. I see some online for a fearsome £20 a pair but these must be your average opportunist sellers. So, I appeal to you, where do i find replacements blocks for my Nuovo & Super Record calipers?

I saw some in a shop earlier this year. They were in modern Campagnolo packaging, similar to their other current products. I can't remember the actual price but it was something ridiculous like that.

I suppose they are "reissues" like the Turbo and Concor saddles.

Brake block prices are a rip off anyway, £15-30 for a few pieces of moulded rubber?

Yup, I got mine from Nigel, great bloke to deal with and the cheapest place for those blocks. I got a few other little spares at the same time to make the most of the postage.
