    Looking at a bike on Craigslist that has Campy Mirage components. I'm not seeing any reach adjustment on them, and don't see any reference to them taking shims like Shimano integrated levers do.

    Anyone know differently?

    Thanks!

    I believe my boss, known as the Campy Nazi, rigs up some type of shim for women. I will have to ask him tomorrow.

    Drill a hole in the top of the lever blade and use a zip tie, or drill a hole in the body and use a pin (the boss uses a spoke tap and uses a spoke) to prevent the QR post from going all the way in.

    BTW, this is Sanjuro.
