Shimano 105 1050-FD compatibility with 6600 brifter?
Hi, I'm replacing the downtube shifters on a cannondale criterium with some spare 6600 brifters. The drivetrain has already been converted to 10-speed, but the FD is still the original 1050 series (circa 1987).
This FD worked fine with the downtube shifters of course, but should I expect to have problems with the new brifters? I.e. has the cable pull for the FD changed over the intervening 25 years?
I'm certainly willing to buy and fit a new FD if necessary, but I think it's kinda cool to keep one original part on the bike!
