    Campy R Derail 8-9-10 compatibility ?

    I saw an Ebay listing for a Mirage 8-9-10 rear derailleur. I hadn't really thought about it, but is there any functional difference between the different Campy rear derailleurs ?? If you have 10 speed brifters & cassette, will a "9 speed" derailleur work ?

    I want build a budget 10 speed Campy bike for my daughter, shopping for lightly used parts on Ebay, and wondering how picky I need to be.

    I believe that post '91 9 speed and 10 speed are compatible. 8 speed and early 9 speed work with each other, but not later versions.
    If you download the exploded views from the Campy website, there is a table of compatibility in there, just after the Ergopower parts if I recall correctly.

    '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

    Unlike Shimano whose rear derailleurs almost all work with any 8, 9 or 10-speed brifter (pre 9-speed Dura Ace being the sole exception), Campy's 8 and early 9-speed rd's aren't compatible with later 9/10-speed.

    The cable pull change cut-off date is 2001 (which may have been the intro date for Chorus/Record 10 speed?) Mirage wasn't offered in 10s any earlier than that, so my guess is that a newer Mirage would work. If the description said 9/10 I wouldn't worry, but I'm not sure if Mirage was still 8s in '01. Probably was, though, so you'd be OK. A Chorus/Record 9 would definitely not work.
