Dear Lennard,
I’ve been reading your Q&A blog and saw many questions about the reconstruction for the Campy shifters (Not My Favorites), but my question is: Since I’m riding SRAM Red is there any possibility to rebuild them or I need to replace in the time they’ve been serving?

Dear Alex,
Yes, they can be rebuilt, although replacement parts are not easy to locate.
