First, a request for you. It sure would make it a lot easier to read your posts if you used punctuation and capitalization. I know it saves you a LOT of time, but it makes it hard on the reader. Just a common courtesy.

I hope you recognize that along with getting new shifters, you will probably need new derailleurs, most likely a new rear wheel and cassette. new chain, and probably need to have your frame bent open to take the wider rear wheel. These projects are seldom cost justified.

Hi
sorry about my grammer wasn't very good in school ,But if it bugs you then hey what can i say but sorry. My frame is 130mm measured between the dropouts,I thought this was the standard these days to fit a 10spd cassette? So realy dont think there should be a problem (i hope) I only have the frame so i am sourcing the campag parts, ,just a project to work on .I have also found out the frame is an italian thread 70mm ,I have heard thes brackets can work loose but if i keep my eye on it should be ok.


Thanks no grammer Sam
