I was wondering what those weird little thumb-sized levers sticking out of the sides of campy shifters/ergolevers are used for. I don't know anything about Campagnolo stuff so this may sound like a silly question. Are they used to shift in one direction while the 'normal' longer levers on the brake lever part are used to shift in the other direction?

Also I looked at a diagram which seemed like they were used for part of the installation too, but I am not totally sure.

Yep.


Thumb toggle gets you a smaller diameter gear

The paddle behind the break lever gets you a larger diameter gear.
