Campagnolo Ekar thumb shifter hooks from half of the cassette

How to bleed Campagnolo hydraulic disc brakes?

The bleeding procedure is (probably) identical for all hydraulic brakes by Campagnolo, but I'll focus on Ekar. Most of the steps are explained in Campagnolo's manual and the video, however it lacks ...

Wahoo Kickr cassette compatibility with Campagnolo

Campagnolo Chorus 10-speed shifters - bad shifter feel

How to bleed Campagnolo hydraulic disc brakes?

Good write up. A few notes: It shouldn't take anything like an hour after the 1st one. 20 - 30 mins tops. First time, maybe an hour for those who are not very mechanically adept. If doing a pair, ...

Broken gear shifter case. Is it safe to use?

Usually crash, crack, and years ago (so, age and possibly fatigue in addition to the impact damage) are not suggesting something is safe. Especially if they are describing the handlebars, forks, ...
