    Campy and FSA ??

    I am putting together the parts order for a new bike and I just flat out don't know the answer to this one.

    If I put Centaur 10 speed brifters on the bike, and a FSA compact crank, will the FSA or IRD front derailleurs work well with the CAmpy brifter??

    Can't see any reason it wouldn't - two chain rings, and the Campy FD can be trimmed so can't see why it wouldn't work..

    But this indexong nonsense has screwed up everything.

    The other choice is to just use a bar-end for the front but I'd prefer to stay complete

    Yeah....There is no indexing in the Campy fornt shifter. It's just a relatively fine ratchet.

    The Campy 10 speed front shifter has 9 detents just like the rear shifter. You should be able to find enough latitude there to operate any front derailleur available.
