Campagnolo Mirage 9 sp rd + Centaur 10 sp shifters = 10 sp?

Campagnolo Mirage 9 sp rd + Centaur 10 sp shifters = 10 sp?

I just picked up a really cheap Mirage 9 sp rd, and I am having trouble confirming if its the post-change parallellogram since I'd like to use this with 10 speed shifters as a 10 sp substitute RD..

Help?

what I bought is here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Campagnolo-Mirag...item27adcac90e

if this helps get any Bike forumers a good deal on an RD.

I think the change was in 2001, not much help I know.
You might ask at the Branford Bike site.

ok, thanks, I think mirage didn't get 10 speed until 2007, so I am hoping this 9 speed shifter falls into the post-2001 batch.

Only thing is that these Mirage shifters say 9 speed but 8 speed compatible. I didn't think RD's were 8-9 speed compat.

If they are 8-speed compatible then they are not 10-speed compatible, and that is a possibility.

The RD is definitely a newer model since the "B" screw is of the new design where it's tucked under the main pivot. Older RDs used the traditional B screw location.

The only difference between the 9 & 10 is the pulleys. Actually the pulleys are the same the bushing and screw are shorter for the 10 sp compared to the 9. I can't see any reason your 9 sp won't work.
