Basically I am toying with the idea of switching my shimano hybrid components for a campy setup. I figured I'd need a campy 10 speed cassette which is splined for the shimano freehub (found one ) but what about derailleurs?
I read somewhere that the derailleur doesn't matter as it is the shifter than controls the cable pull - is this true?
At the moment my bike has:
Shimano FD-M310, 31.8mm clamp
Shimano Alivio RD-M410
SRAM PG-830, 8-speed, 11-32t
48Ax36Sx26S, Super Shifter III, w/ chainguard
Shimano BB-UN-25, cartridge bearing, 68 x 113mm
- do I need a new front and/or rear derailleur?
- if so will a campy triple front derailleur work with the chainrings I have (the campy min is 30t, capacity 22t)?
- would a jtek shiftmate for the front derailleur sort out any shifting problems? It seems that the jtek straight 7s will convert a campy shifter to a shimano derailleur and mtb cranks.
Is there anything else that I am missing?
