There is absolutely no problem using a Simplex SLJ on Campy DO's.  I've d one it lots of times.  And on Huret DO's and on Simplex DO's of course.

Speaking of Stronglight rings, I am still looking for parts for my 1975-ish Allegro, to be a rider, not a show bike:

(1) 34 or 36 T inner ring for my Stronglight 99 crank set (86 MM BCD) to set up as a compact double with a 52T outer and a wide-range rear standard 6-speed (13-26 or so) rear cluster. (I have a 38 already, but may need lower gearing for hills.)

(1) New rubber hoods to fit my Campi NR brakes (ca. 1973?)

Eventually I also want a 26.6 MM Simplex steel seatpost, too--used and usable condition preferred.

(I like my parts to look like me--older and battle-scarred :-), as long as the look does not impact performance.)

I also have a question for all the Super LJ rear derailleur users out there--how well do they work on Campi dropouts? Dennis Stone at my LBS says that the LJs do not work well with the Campis, and I only used them on my Simplex-dropout PX-10 LE in my previous life...
