How do you change Campy down tube C-Record indexed shifters to be friction shifters? I don't like index shifters as they limit your options with the cassette you can use.

Mine are Campagnolo Veloce.

  • Can you point us to the part that you're using? I don't see a Campy Veloce downtube shifter to begin with. – Batman Mar 16 '17 at 3:33

I'm not familiar with those shifters but perhaps this will be of assistance: Campy Syncro 2 shifters

The left/front shifter is a standard friction shifter.

To convert (the right one) to pure friction, you can actually just remove the springs and optionally the boss collar -- the springs are all that is required to (re)move.

    @Criggie Thanks for that, I normally would have done so but quite honestly, I'm more than a little out of my depth with a lot of Campy's stuff and didn't want to confuse anybody by making assumptions. – Philip Gibbons Mar 16 '17 at 4:11
