I’m currently putting a bike together for use on the road, the bike came with a Campagnolo chainset “veloce” and also a Campagnolo front mech “Daytona”
The bike dates from the late 90’s so I’d ideally like to keep it period although I’m pretty flexible
Been looking at Campagnolo components on ebay to complete the bike
Before I buy anything I want to make sure that I’m getting the right thing
Have a few questions any help would a great
What year did campagnolo stop producing 8 speed ?
Will an older 8 speed cassette fit on a modern wheel?
Am I right in thinking that you can only use 8 speed levers with and 8 speed mech? 9 speed levers with a 9 speed mech etc
Are 8 speed ergos pretty hard to find? (I really like the ones which have both metal brake and gear levers)
Is there a site that explains the range of Campagnolo components e.g chorus, Daytona, record, veloce etc ?
Does the distance between the rear drop outs have any effect on the maximum number of gears you can fit?
