Does anyone know if these hoods will fit Campy NR levers ?

I'm having trouble finding the gum hoods :cry:

They look more like Weinmann/early Dura-Ace style to me so may be to big around where the cable comes out for Campag. Try Campyoldy for hoods, they often have them - at a price!

If you know a Euro Asia dealer, they make plan black campy knockoffs for about $20 USD.

Those def won't fit campy, the top of campy levers have a higher profile that will rip right through those hoods.

Another suggestion is to keep your eye out for old Modolo hoods. They can go cheap and they fit campy.

Well, with the real hoods like rocking horse poo I decided to take a £4.99 gamble .. and lost. The cheapo Formos hoods are OK at the cable exit but too baggy around the body. Slightly too short as well.

Below L to R : Campy SR , Modolo Speedy , Formos + Hood

Bought some NOS ones from a guy called campyparts on ebid.net.
£18 a pair and took about a week from Italy.
