Both my 1969 Gillott and my 1969 Hurlow were built for front deraillers with integral cable stop. I assume that whenever Campagnolo discontinued this feature, there were plenty available in the UK for a few years afterwards. DB Ak, NZ

Perchance does anyone out there have one to sell?

And are these terribly uncommon? First time I've heard of it and I don't

recall seeing them on eBay. This frame is built with the braze ons for t his so I'm stuck." Could it be that the bike was originally fitted with a Campagnolo Valentino? By 1967, I don't think that Campagnolo was supplying the front derailleur with cable stop anymore. The Valentino front derailleurs are quite readily found. Steven MaaslandMoorestown, NJUSA
