  1. I know this has been asked before so feel free to send me a link to the information...

    I need to know what is compatable between Shimano and Campagnolo in 9 speed shifting.

    Specifically the compnents I would like to mix are:

    9 Speed Campagnolo Ergo Levers 9 Speed Ultegra RD 9 Speed Campagnolo Cassette (Training Wheels) 9
    Speed Shimano Cassette (Race Wheels)

    I know the real answer is to use the same manufacturer's stuff and be done with it but, I have an
    Ultegra setup and I don't like the way my hands fit on the Shimano lever hoods, The Campagnolo lever
    body shape extends from the bars into nice long flats with lotsa nice hand positions.

    Also I have an older set of Campagnolo wheels I would like to use with the setup.

    Campy ergos need to be used with Campy rear der.

    Shimano STI's can only be used w/ Shimano rear ders.

    The rest are all interchangeable. Campy wheels with Shimano gear and vice versa. ... ...

    When you have either an Ergo lever and a Campagnolo rear changer _or_ an STi lever and a Shimano
    changer, you can mix and match wheels to your heart's content.

    There are several kludges for mixing levers and changers but generally keeping them matched is
    best IMHO.

    Sound like the thing you need is an Ultegra-quality Campagnolo changer such as the Veloce at under
    $60 or the Centaur/Daytona at about $80.

    Will not wotk, need to match the shifters to the rder-Campagnolo-Campagnolo(any Campagnolo rder) or
    shimano-shimano-

    Otherwise the two wheels will work fine if you have either a matched Campagnolo shifter-rder or the
    other maker-

    See above, you cannot use a Campagnolo 9s lever set with a shimano rder....

    without a LOT of screwing around to geta mediocre result-it won;t work. The lever/deraileur is a
    total mismatch, yu can mess with the cog spacing with comercialy available kits-but they really
    don't work all that well (certainly not as well as a single-source system will). The days of
    mix-and-match are gone. Thank goodness.

    Hmmmm, kinda liked it when you could go into a bike store and get any rear der(shimano, Simplex,
    Huret, Campagnolo), put it on and it would work. Or any freewheel, any teeth shape, any number(as
    long as it was 5/6/7) and it would work, samo for fders. And use some matthauser blocks or anything
    else, it would work...

    Now gotta have specific7/8/9/10s cogsets(still have 5/6/7s freewheels), specific chains,
    manufacturer specific levers and ders, sometimes specific and unique into a manufacturers own
    lineup(DA triple, Sram, shimano MTB fder), really interesting, but kinda a pain for the rider and
    bike shop.

    Actually, according to this article it works fine:

    Haven't tried it myself, though.
