    Centaur & Record interchangeability

    Hi

    I have a novice question.
    I'm wondering if the Record front & rear derailer is compatible with Centaur group!?
    Is there any website which tells you the interchangeability between Record & Centaur?
    Thanks.

    There are no compatibility issues among the different Campagnolo product lines.

    With a couple of exceptions this is correct. Record and Chorus bottom brackets are unique to these two groups. Centaur and below use a different axle length and configuration. Otherwise, shifters, cassettes, hubs, chains and derailleurs are mix-and-match as long as the "speeds" are the same.

    There are no incompatabilities between Centaur and Record, say using a Centaur crank and front derailleur and a Record rear derailleur and hub, or using Record or Chorus shifters and Centaur derailleurs. The brakesets all work interchangably as well.

    The length required of the bottom bracket spindle is longer for Centaur doubles and triples, Chorus and Record Triples than for Chorus and Record doubles and Carbon cranksets of Centaur, Chorus and Record.
    Some also require assymetrical spindle lengths and others not. This might make for incompatibility in switching from one line's crank to another.
