Shimano 9 speed cassette with Campagnolo Chorus shifters and derailleurs?

I am trying to clean out stuff in my basement and outfit an old bike. I don't have a Campagolo cassette to mic the spacing. All of my Campagnolo is 10 speed and all of my Shimano is 9 speed. Does anyone have the distance from 1st to 9th to compare to a Shimano before I put the bike together and find out is shifts like junk? I appreciate any suggestions.

Shimano 9-speed is 4.34 mm center to center.
Campy 10-speed is 4.12 mm center to center.

Not compatible. http://sheldonbrown.com/k7.html

Or add a JTEK shiftmate into the system. I believe they are available through the website again.

hey don't sell/trade it just yet!

campy and shimano can work.

all you need is any shimano Rear deraillure.

use a 9 speed cassette with your 10 speed shifters and just bolt up the shift cable using the hub-bub alternate routing

true, I would consider the shiftmate. I didn't get to setup 9sp first-hand, but considering how well 8sp worked, I can't see 9 speed being too difficult.

of course, check the chain, and make sure the hanger is straight. <--- extremely important!

pull down into the smallest cog, tighten the rear shifter cable until it wants to jump to the next larger cog, and loosen the cable a 1/2 turn. run the the cogs and tune out any skipping in 1/4 turn steps.

The trouble with using a Shiftmate or hubub routing is that any time you want to mount a Campy 10-speed wheel with your Campy 10-speed shifters you'll have to put everything back as before and re-adjust the shift cable.
