I'm trying to restore an Eddy Merckx (saved from the bin) from ca 2002.
It has mostly Campagnolo Record parts. Both the levers and front mech were badly broken when I got it. I found a pair of new Campagnolo Xenon 9 Speed Ergopower levers that shifts good on the rear.
I cannot find any new front derailleur. What can I replace it with?
I'll use it for commuting and if possible I can absolutely live with mixing brands (eg. a Shimano front mech).
Thanks a million in advance :)
Update: sorry for confusing with the word restore. For this bike I'm l looking to make a good and robus commuter. Not to make it back to original.
After reading up quite a lot I have found out that almost any Shimano front, made for two chainrings and 9 cogs back, would work just fine. Have not verified it though.
I'll see if I can find an ok campa on eBay otherwise try with a cheap Shimano.
