Default Veloce 9 speed questions

I have an opportunity to buy a 1999 bike with Veloce components at a
reasonably low price. My plans are to strip the components and install
them on a early 1990's vintage Colnago. Are there any major obstacles to
look out for? Are repair parts readily available for that year's
components? Is there any compatability issues with Veloce components
through the past 6 years? Thanks, Ed

everything should be fine. but veloce hubs are really cheezy [poor
bearing quality]. i would definitely make an upgrade there.

May have to 'cold set' the rear triangle to 130mm and the BB shell for
the Colnago is Italian. 1999 9s veloce is like 2005 10s veloce,
Everything current will work with that gruppo. 9s cogsets and chains
are plentiful. If ya ever want to convert the lever to 10s, that is
easy as well.

1999 Veloce hubs rear hubs are just like Chorus hubs in that they have
the same axle, bearings, different hub shell is all. FH-19VL....Same
with the front, Same axle, bearings, etc.

Veloce hubs of today are steel axled and cart bearings but altho
portly, VERY long lasting cart bearings, NOT cheezy at all.

the ones i had were back in 01. they were cup & cone and crapped out in
about 1000 miles - and they were adjusted properly. campy warranteed
them, but i didn't re-use them, just sold them. i was very
disappointed. probaby old stock from what you're saying.

So what exactly needs to be replaced to upgrade 1999 9s to 10s? A
shift disk, maybe some lever springs, chain and cassette, is that it?

A shift cam, which necessitates removal of the through bolt, makes
for a complete conversion. Often the cam is omitted because it's
tricky to get to. The Cam is inexpensive.

On my 2001 Bianchi Campione, with 9S Veloce, the Front Hub has
conventional Cups/Bearings, the Rear is Cartridge type.

Before 10 miles were put on the Bike, I broke down both hubs, cleaned
out the almost non-existant crappy grease, and re-lubed, and lashed both
Hubs. I've had zero problems, and they are every bit as smooth as my
Record 10S Hubs on my Paramount 50th. (No, they're not as pretty though)
:-)

If you find your Colnago Frame is "very close" to 130mm. I mean
something like 127mm-128mm, you might just be able to "squeeze" the rear
Hub in without any frame stretching/modifications. Tire changes will be
a little bit harder though. Mark

On my NOS Schwinn Paramount 50th Anniv. Frame, and my build-up last
year, I went with all 2004 Record Drivetrain Components. My rear
dropout spacing was just a tad over 128mm (Something like 128.858mm with
a Dial Caliper)

Just a very slight stretching was required with my fingers, and slight
finger pressure , which I don't think will ever be a problem for me, and
shouldn't be for you.

While my Wipperman SS Chain, and smallest cog of a 13-26 Cassette
appeared sort of close to the right rear dropout on this 1989 Frameset,
so far I haven't had any problems.

I'm hoping Peter Chisholm will answer your question about the
dating/upgradeability of Campy Veloce Ergos. He's the Campy Expert
here.
