I'm inclined to say that if your frame is made of steel and you can spread your chainstays to 130 mm and square the dropouts, you can make it work with the full kit I outlined in the first paragraph

I have bought everything as shimano so far, all thats left for me to buy is the shifters, and I plan to purchase the sora 3500 9spd triple shifters, I'd much rather have something designed for use with my other parts if it means spending an extra Â£20 (on the website i found)

There are many reasons to not like a group, from ergonomic reasons to functional reasons, many of which are a matter of personal preference. Just because I prefer the ergonomics and function of the Campy groups I've used over the Shimano and SRAM stuff I've tried doesn't mean that Campy is functionally better in any objective way. It solely means that I preferred it. So what? Again, anecdotal stuff--whether it's my personal preference, Leonard Zinn's observations, or your, Alfeng, baseless claims and penchant for Rube Goldberg solutions and bicycles--does not make for objective data. There is no objective data showing any group is objectively better than the rest, and no matter how many different font colors you use or how many levels of indentation you employ, you've got nothing that shows any one group is objectively superior to the rest, Rube.
Tsk, tsk ... So, you are doubling-down on using that anti-Semitic, "Rube Goldberg" description for bikes which you do not approve of ... That would be unbelievable Chutzpah if it weren't for the fact that you are apparently proud to be an anti-Semite!Originally Posted by alienator .
To some degree, yes, but generally not to the point that they are Rube Goldberg machines.
