update, shimano/campag compatibility
OK, so the other day I posted a question about how compatible the ergopower 8 shifters I bought would be with the shimano 8 speed derailleur and cassette I had would be. I have an update.
I ended up having to buy an 8 sp. Campag derialleur, which I was told would work with a shimano 7 sp. cassette. I took my 8 sp. SRAM cassette apart, re-spaced it with shimano 7 sp. spacers, and voila! Perfect shifting with the ergopower 8, 8 sp. Campag derialleur and a respaced SRAM 8 sp. cassette.
Nice way of getting an 8 sp. Campag drivetrain to work with a shimano compatible 10 sp. wheel!
