    Campy Centaur vs Veloce Ultrashift levers
    Veloce is quite a bit less money and has aluminum vs carbon levers for the Centaur.
    Weight is 349 vs 328g.
    Do they work the same and same internal mech?
    I have the Centaur on one bike and like them a lot but would like to save some $$$ if Veloce works just as well.

    I'm not sure about the internals, but they DO work the same as far as I know. I'm planning on getting some of the Veloce Ultrashifts as soon as Ribble has them back in stock.

    They should have identical internal mechanisms and work the same. Campy used bushings in the Centaur and lower level ultrashift levers at the outset (I have a pair), but later switched to using the same ball bearings at all levels.
