    Campagnolo 9 / 10 speed compatibility

    Hi Guys

    have following parts for my bike

    Campagnolo Mirage 9 speed ergo shifters
    9 speed cassette

    Looking to fit a mirage rear derailleur, problem is i'm struggling to find a 9 speed derailleur

    Can a ten speed derailleur be used with 9 speed shifters and 9 speed cassette?

    It will, if the shifters are 2001 or newer. If not, then the cable pull won't be quite right. The older shifters pull more cable than needed.

    Bit of an update, I won a ten speed record mech last night ( think its form around 2007 has the carbon cage) , been thinking will I run into issues with chain width? i.e will my 9 speed chain be to wide to fit in the mech properly? would a ten speed chain solve the problem?

    Just buy a set of 9 sp pulleys and screws. You need the screws because they're longer to accommodate the wider spacers used the 9 sp pulleys. Ebay is full of Mirage & Veloces 9 sp rear mech's/derailleurs. Good luck

    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.
