    Interesting! Good to know. In the latest build, I was told to use Campy 10 sp. Record shifters with Shimano/Sram 9 sp. drivetrain. I originally tried using a Shiftmate, but had all sorts of shifting issues on steep hills. In the end, I had to buy a modified 9 sp. Sram derailleur to make things work smoothly.

    If I may contribute to the necromancing:

    I have done 10 on 8 Shimergo and did not find it perfect. Some people say they get it to work, I couldn't though.

    An option that I think is really viable and quite under-utilized is to gut your Campy lever of choice, and use it with barcons or dt shifters. Now you have the superior ergonomics and functionality of Campy with the reliability and perfect indexing of your barcons... plus any cassette you want. Levers are cheap too since usually you can get them as part of broken shifters and really, Veloce QS and similar low level campy isn't usually worth fixing to any but the hardest core campy fan. 2/3 of my bikes have gutted campy levers.

    Very nice looking bike. Are those painted lugs on the head tube. It looks great.

    Thank you! Yes, the builder suggested painted lugs on the head tube (and other parts of the frame) to go with the lugs on the twin-plate fork crown.

    That truly defines what a beautiful bike should be.
