    '04 Centaur Ultra Drive compatibility with modern Quiet Shift?

    I have the Ultra Drive Centaur triple FD, long cage RD, and shifters. I will not be using a triple crankset and the newer QS FD would be easier and cheaper to enable the switch to a double (or compact). I am curious if this would be compatible with my shifters or if I would be better served finding a similar vintage Ultra Drive FD. I understand the long cage would not be ideal (especially with the compact) but I intend to use the bike as grocery hauler and will use the extended gear range it allows. This is a 10 speed set up if that matters in the least.

    Thank You

    You shouldn't have any problems. Centaur on a grocery getter is pretty luxurious! Good luck
