    Components compatibility

    will these parks work together and will they work well?

    Sram Force 10 speed deraillure
    Shimano Ultegra Brakelevers
    Shimano Ultegra Brakeset
    Shimano 105 cog
    Shimano Ultegra or 105 crank set
    shiamno 105 hubs

    does anyone have a combination that will work better?

    thanks,
    John

    Don't know about the SRAM derailleur. Why would you want to replace an Ultegra with a SRAM? Shimano's derailleurs are a great buy for the money unlike their brifters. Just build the bike with 105, it's a lot of bang for the buck.

    Actually, you should have posted this in the mechanics forum. You will get answers with explanations. Good luck.

    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    No. SRAM rear derailleurs need SRAM shifters to work. The amount of cable pull is different.

    Not true, but you may need one of these:

    Actually, the post you quoted was 100% true. If the OP wishes to run that combo he will definitely need the shiftmate for Sram/Shimano, no may about it.

    In the post I quoted, Thor answered "No" to the question "will these parks work together and will they work well?" I said (correctly) this was not true because they indeed will work together with a ShiftMate.

    Wow, I see we're super hung-up on semantics and revisionist history of sorts. Cheers.
