    Does anyone know if the Chorus 10s front derailleur is available in 28.6mm size, or whether there is a shim available to adapt my 32mm derailleur to a 28.6 seatpost? Thanks.

    You have two options that I know of:

    One is to remove the 32mm clamp and get a campy braze-on attachment (Part FD-RE201) and convert your derailleur to a braze-on and use with a separate 28.6mm clamp such as this:

    Another is to use a shim under the 32mm clamp around the seat tube such as is available from Branford Bike at the following link:

    Your local shop may carry similar products. I think the first solution is more elegant and I use such a bracket with a Veloce triple FD on a 28.6 seat tube.

    There may be other solutions that others may suggest.
