Hello!

My LBS installed a new Pro Stealth Evo integrated bar for me but have had problems getting the Campy Super Record 11 shifters to tighten. They claim the bars, being compact, have a smaller radius at the point the shifters tighten on the bar and there's not enough thread to tighten them properly. I can find pics of Campy shifters on these bars but only the ergo version. Anyone know if it can be done? Is this Campy being annoying or PRO being awkward? Or is the LBS not trying hard enough?! Cheers!

Pro is made by Shimano.....Shimano and Campy are not compatible.

We need pictures. I wonder if the angle you want to achieve is too high up on the bar where the diameter begins to increase rapidly ... I can only speculate without pictures ... Did I mention we need pictures?

It is IME a Campy problem and common with a lot of bars. This sounds daft, I know, as it is likely loose as hell no matter how much you tighten it (again, common...) but carbon paste actually really does the trick. Be as liberal as you can with the application without it being "wet" when applied around the whole clamping area.

I apply more than needed in these cases, and then carefully with my fingertip smear it out just until it is "dry". You will still need to tighten down the clamps but usually nowhere near the harsch end-of-threads levels that you did before.

This all comes from experience and also reading the same thing multiple times on different forums.

How large is the gap?
What about some Loctite retainer? (Not threadlock)

No problems whatsoever using Campy SR with Pro Evo's and this is my second build with that combo.

Carbon paste wouldn't solve this problem if the facts are correct.
It sounds like the bikeshop is erring on the side of caution.

I think they aren't trying hard enough. They could use longer "T" bolts and / or longer clamp nuts to achieve more thread location. Titanium brake nuts (available in various lengths) can be used as clamp nuts.

5 8 5, I speak from experience. Have had this exact same issue (as have others) and you could tighten that bolt with seriously unhealthy force, and the levers would still sit too loose on the bars. This actually happens from time to time (but seemingly, Campy is always the common denominator), and carbon friction paste actually helps.
.
The rest might be theory, but these are the real world proven facts.

Ya have to wonder ... did you get a counterfeit (knockoff set) ? My guys have built dozens of sets up with this combo and no complaints.
