    question about Shimano Dura Ace 10 speed DT shifters

    can I use these with SRAM Derailleurs? I know that for brifters I need to stick with SRAM/SRAM or Shimano/Shimano, but these are indexed 10 speed down tube shifters.

    Thank You

    Hello byhsu

    I don't believe that the Shimano DT index shifters and SRAM derailleurs are compatible. The ratio between the derailleur and the shifters is what's important. Here's a good reference for further information:
    Rear Shifting

    However, some fiddeling will sometimes yield unexpected results

    Nope. JTek has an adapater, however. Or run friction.
