    Components compatibility

    will these parks work together and will they work well?

    Sram Force 10 speed deraillure
    Shimano Ultegra Brakelevers
    Shimano Ultegra Brakeset
    Shimano 105 cog
    Shimano Ultegra or 105 crank set
    shiamno 105 hubs

    does anyone have a combination that will work better or mean where should I spend the money and where could I save some and still have a great set up..

    thanks,
    John

    Not really sure what your question is. Do you already have these components, if so, yes, they will work fine together.

    If you want a cheap index system, go for a 105 9 spd group. NOS or E-bay is really cheap because everyone wants 10 spd (overkill in my opinion).

    I don't think the SRAM derailleur will work with Shimano shifters. SRAM's own shifters and derailleurs use a different cable pull amount and geometry to shift over a Shimano width cassette. Everything else will work together.

    Let me ask this.....why all the mixing and matching? While some odd combinations can be done, why would you?

    If your FD, RD, shifters, cassette body and cassette are all from one maker things will go much more smoothly.

    just tryign to look for ways to build out a nice ride and what can be done.
    I have a chance to score some camp parts but my wheels are shimano hubs ...so it looks like I may have to get the rear wheel rebuilt with a camp cog if I get them.

    Yes, the right model Jtek Shiftmate will make this setup compatible.

    That answer is applicable to the OP as well.

    J-tek lists their #5 a Shiftmate that allows Shimano shifters to work with a SRAM rear derailleur and SRAM or Shimano cassettes but everything must be 10-speed.

    You can use a campy derailleur but the campy shifters will not work with a Shimano cassette. The cable pull of the shifters are different. I have a reversed set up as your's. I'm using campy 8-speed shifters shifting a record cassette through a Shimano 600 derailleur. Works just fine. The shifters have to match the cassette, either that or use a 'J-tech' device to alter the cable pull for whatever cassette you want to use.
