Dura Ace, Camapagnolo 52/42 chainrings,

In order to make the brake lever/shifters fit, I use a small strip of heavier gauged copper, any strip of metal would do, to shim and fill the space between the clamp and the bar, the levers are well anchored. Fun to mash gears on, although out of saddle sprints are not as stable as with a drop bar. I'm thinking of eventually having a set of drops to switch bars if I felt like I'd want to have a different ride for the day.
Anyone have an old set of 9 speed shimano brifters?

The frame cracked at the downtube near the headtube in late 2010/early 2011.
I'll have the frame repaired sometime next year.
