Building up a bike and I want to use new Campy QS ergo's with an existing Ultegra 10spd drivetrain using a J-tek adapter. (I have smallish hands and prefer the feel and trigger action of the ergos). I've used this set-up on my pre-QS 9spd and it works fine.
QUESTION: Is the QS front shifter very dedicated to the Campy front derailleur? IOW, will I get good shifting with the Ultegra fd or will I need to buy a new Campy fd to match the QS ergos?
'''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!
Depends on which line of QS Ergos you buy.
Record and Chorus QS retain the "micro shifting" for the front derailleur and will work with Campy or Shimano front derailleurs and cranks. Centaur and below don't have the micro shifting and will work properly only with a Campy QS fd and, perhaps also require a Campy crank.
