I'm new to the TT thing.

What are my options with choosing a set of shifters for my Campag Record 10 groupset?

Will any others work OK apart from the Obvious Campag ones?

    Do what plenty of Time Trialists do and use Shimano shifters in friction mode. You can then mix and match any wheel/manufacturer combo you like without any adjustment, 8, 9 or 10 sp.

    Last season my daughter was using Dura Ace 9sp shifters, Ultegra 10sp mechs and 10sp Campag freehub Cosmic on the back.

    I tried friction mode shifting but too many miss-shifts put me right off so I went with shimano on the TT bike.

    +1 TBH unless you're doing hilly TTs you don't change gear much anyway in a TT - although shifting with my Dura Ace levers in friction mode has been very positive

    Friction shifters require a slight degree of skill to use - especially if you're used to index shifting! However, they don't take that long to get used to.
