Hi guys,

Does anybody have a suggestion for replacement hoods for the above levers. I knwo Hilary Stone and a few others do the replacement campag ones but they are the gum colour. I am looking for white. There a couple of pairs on ebay at the moment but they are too pricey. More than I paid for the levers in fact.

I am looking for some generic white ones that will do the job as it were. I am led to believe that Dia Compe hoods like these will fit

Has anyone had any experience in this r do you know of another alternative?

Cheers

Stephen

Hello,

I've tried those Dia Compe hoods and I thought they worked quite well.

The rubber is quite thick and seems fairly durable.

I seem to recall they were a bit of a tight fit, particularly round the front of the lever
where the cable comes out, but shouldn't be a problem if you lube them up with
soap or washing up liquid.
