I have one Challenger rear mech. There was a version that worked well on a Campagnolo dropout as this bike has that combo. The shifters are a bit heavy as they are steel. It shifts pretty darn well for style it is, not being a slant parallelogram.
I do find though that after a shift that I find myself reaching down to fine tune the alignment, I think the design of the jockey wheels allows more tolerance than I wish for.i run mine over a 14-26 and it has an easier time moving to the 26 than a Campagnolo does.
