Hey, I've got a 2007 Centaur/Record equipped (record FD hehe) Bianchi...and I was just wondering, if I wanted to upgrade to maximize shifting "performance" I was thinking that getting Chorus/Record shifters would get me the oh so helpful escape mech on both up and down shifts, multiple cogs in both directions on one swoop.

Can I just replace my carbon Centaur shifters with some Chorus shifters and be good to go? Or do I need to replace the rear derailleur for the escape compatibility as well?

Thanks.

You only need the shifters. A common setup is to use Chorus shifters with Centaur for everything else. Record is a little lighter, but the price of saving weight goes up exponentially.

I assume 06 Centaur ergo's would do the same trick or if you want carbon Levers go for Centaur 09.
