Can anyone help me out with this? Nothing clear on the web I could find, esp interested as to the move from C-Record to 8 speed Record. From what I can find it looks like some overlap between ergo shifting and deltas which is interesting.

The '92 catalogue is the first to show Ergo levers, while the Record Delta brake continued until '93. The '94 catalogue is the first to show a dual pivot Record brake.

Here's Greg Lemond with Ergo levers and Delta brakes in the '92 Tour duPont:

The C-Record-style cranks (for 111mm BB) didn't get updated until 1995.

So there was a gradual, part-by-part change to the newer style, starting with the move to Synchro (downtube) indexing for 6 and 7-speed in 1987, then 7-speed cassette hubs (1990?) followed by 8-speed (1991?) and Ergo (1992).

Some of the dates in that last paragraph are tentative: I don't have the 1989 or 1990 catalogues.

Thanks for that, backed up the research I'd done. Great Lemond pic too, Ergos + Deltas = Tidy!

Will have to try and unearth the remaining campag catalogues and get them in the archive.
