    So why not just wait until you can get all 11sp? If that's too long why not just make it all campy 9 or ten speed and upgrade when you can? Look at it this way- if you're definitely going to upgrade,...

    Like I said, I have experience with the exact same set up. I use a 9sp shimano chain because the 10sp campy chain is too narrow to run on the 9sp campagnolo cassette, and I found out the hard way.

    That is a crazy frankenbike set up if i've ever seen one, I'd be very surprised if someone on here could guarantee you that the mechs will all work together.. I have no idea if 11sp campy shifters...

    hmmm okay, well at least that makes two of us, and yes the threading that's coming off it very thin and doesn't seem to weaken the sidewall at all. I assume you're saying that it's not something I...

    I would think that it likely has to do with pulley alignment or cable tension IF you're sure your chain isn't worn. (Usually this is a fault of your chain if you frequently change gears while...
