Newbikeitis?

Now I don't want to start a flame war over shimano vs camagnolo, but I've got a growing itch for a new bike. Unfortunately I can't spend all that money. My DA components are working fine and I have no practical reason to replace them, but they are now about 3 years old and I've got a buddy who will buy them from me.

Damnit, I just need some kind of justification to update my ride. Does anybody know where I can find good prices on 2003 Record parts?

You can do a partial switch, depending on whether you want Campy 9 vs 10

Keep the wheels, crankset, FD and maybe the cassette. Check the archives on how you can reroute your derailleur cable to shift Shimano 9 cassette. Campy Ergo front is not indexed so you don't have to switch the FD.

Alternatively you can try putting Shimano 10 spd cassette on the old hub. You can also check the web for conversion cassettes and spacers.

campy shifters are nice

i have 9spd DA, but i hate the shifters, there is no room for your hands. I just want the campy ergo levers, nothing else. what do i have to replace? im thinkin cables/housing, cassette (10spd DA would work here?) and rear derailleur. is that correct?
