the problem is that the shimano shiftiers are so reliable you rarely have to fix it. But campy shiftiers have known problem with the g-springs wearing out that you have to replace every 10k miles. But i admit i just love how campy looks, the older ones, the newer 11sp looks like shit
Either some of the poorest trolling I've seen on here recently - or just running off poor advice.
I have the earliest Super Record 11 shifter. Nearly 40,000km on them and never once replaced the g-spring/ever had a shift that suggested they were wearing out. By your logic I should be on to my fourth, so...
TP, I thnink he's referring to Campy 10 speed. Those g-springs do need replacing after a while for most folks. Now, if you don't shift much ...
(Any vintage SR) 11 speed is a completely different animal than pre-11 speed 10 speed shifters which use g-springs.
Edit: Leaving aside my comment above, ChiZ01 wrote that you have to replace g-springs every 10K miles, so with 40, 000 km (not miles) by your logic "by his logic" you should be on your 3rd. Although, again note that Camnpy SR uses a different than pre-11 speed 10 speed, and does not even gave g-springs!!
