They were modolo morphos, compatible with both Shimano & campagnolo 8 & 9 speed by swapping out some little plastic bits.

Thanks - I put in so many miles on the flite that I wore through all the leather - Eventually I stripped the leather off and put it on my track bike:

Thanks - If (like me) you're the sort of person that constantly fiddles about with your bikes it's nice to know you can live happily ever after with something!
Love that Cervelo of yours - look forward to seeing how the next one turns out...
