Campagnolo Nuovo record help needed, thank you!

Hello!
I have an old Freschi Supreme road bike with Campagnolo Nuovo record rear derauiler and Regina 7 speed freewheel.
I have a problem when I drive uphill on full load in lowest gear, chain drops to the next gear (second).
Can anybody help with any advice?
Thanks a lot, any help is appreciated!
Best regards,
Martin from Croatia

Could be just a simple adjustment to tightening the shift lever.

Does the lever move, or is it loose ?

Does 1st gear work ok if you are on a flat or slight uphill grade ?

Posts some pics.

You need either 10 posts or you can put the pics in your " gallery".


I do not know how to do this myself.

Most people on the great forum do, and will" chime in " soon to help.

Tighten the screw that holds the shifter on. There's a wire that folds against the screw, flip it out and tighten it some. Problem solved.

Thanks for quick response!
Lever is tightent really well but it does move slightly under load, that looks like the problem.
It leeds then to shorten the cable?
1st gear works properly on flat road.

I will try to shorten the cable.
Thanks again

Shifter screw is tightened on max, I cannot move it any direction. I will try to shorten the cable.

Hope I will get these 10 posts quick so I could share some photos!
Thanks!

Or maybe you need to back out the low limit screw a hair? Could also be worth checking hanger alignment.

Given the age of this gear, could just be wear. How sloppy is the RD and freewheel?

The shifter may be assembled incorrectly or missing a thin washer if the bolt is tightened down all the way and still some play in the shifter under a load.

I did some test runs and some more investigation.
I drove uphill with max load after some changes, and it still shifts gear up, chain jumps one gear lower.
Teeth on cassette look good, shifter lever seems stiff enough but it slightly moves during the load...
I changed jockey wheels, so they are new, I had the same problem before changing as well.
​​​​​​Is it possible that the chain is to short?
The cables are old for sure maybe to change them as wellI?
will try to reach 10 posts so I can put some pictures it will be much more helpful.
Thanks a lot.
Martin

Chainstay flex with heavy pedaling can cause unintended gear shifts on some bikes. Light gauge tubing and short chainstays can exacerbate this.

What's the cogset? Nuovo Record max cog is 26t, but most folks can use a 28t, depending on how it's setup. It may ghost shift using a 28t. Chain length for Campy NR is usually determined by the lowest gear (using a double chainset) so that the upper wheel doesn't rub against the teeth of the big cog.
