Is the shifting smooth and consistent with the sram derailler?

Why don't I see people use the setup with the old campagnolo 8/9s derailers that also gives a fully working 9/10s drivetrains? Is it because they are not as readily available anymore or...?

not as smooth as an ultegra 6600, but no over shifting like this


pro
no extra spacer
triple compatible
12-36 cassette compatible
sram rear MTB derailleur type 1 is cheap, I've paid mine 25 $, brand new, old stock.

cons
downshifting more brutal than standard SHIMERGO except you get a 12/30 cassette


the key is special cable housing from Bottom braquet to sram RD.

Hello, I was going to build up a shimergo bike transmission with: campagnolo veloce shifters 10s, shimano tiagra 4700 RD and a shimano 10s cassette, but after reading this 3d, I'm not sure this is be a good idea.

So I'm thinking about this setup:

- Campagnolo veloce shifters 10s

- SRAM exact 10s

- Shimano 105 11s cassette

Veloce shifters pulls 2,8 mm of cable, SRAM exact has got a 1,3 ratio, so 2,8x1,3 = 3,64 mm, very close to the 105 cog pitch: 3,69 mm.

Is this a working setup? Does anyone tried this?

Thanks and sorry for my english!

Unless you have an exact actuation derailleur and the cassette, isn't it at least more cost effective to just buy an 11-30 miche cassette (60-80euros), enjoy full compatibility and call it a day? (except if you need to go even wider)

That's the route I choose to go. I was planning a 1x10, fast, all-around commuting bike but only had the shifters and a wheel that was able to accept both cassette types.

Everything else would either cost more, or had more or less issues while not oering any real advantage. So I grabbed a xenon 10s derailleur (32€ shipped, merlin) to match with my veloce shifters (new, 84€ shipped, ebay).

...then ended up setting the xenon aside and setting it up as a single speed, with parts I had laying around, until sometime I set my mind to get the cassette and chain and finish this project ...but that's irrelevant.


End of the day, if you have all the expensive parts already, try it. If not, I see no advantage

Thanks 4c2o, you're right, but I've got a shimano wheel, so I must use a shimano spline cassette. I'm thinking about buyng a pair of 11 speed ergopower shifters and a xenon 10 speed rear mech, they should work with the shimano 11 speed cassette! Don't they?

are you sure a 11 s cassette fits your wheel ?
can you change the hub ?
why are you looking for campy ? for price ?
do you really need 11 speed ?
do you need a 11 /36 cassette ?


I think 11 s campy shifter needs an 11 s campy RD.

the shimergo with 11 s campy shifter is shimano RD with 1.7 geometry. In this case, you got a 9 s drive train. I just hope I don't add some confusion.

Great hack!
but I should have read it all the way through...
Currently running 10sp Chorus shifters with 9sp Chorus derailleur and Shimano 10sp cassette.
No problems!
Now I guess that Dura Ace 11 speed derailleur I ordered is pretty much worthless...oh well.
At least now I have time to save up for some Campag wheels.

Can I use 11 speed Campagnolo shifters, probably Veloce, with Shimano 11 speed derailleurs and cassette.

This will be on a gravel bike, probably geared 11-34 and 44-32 or 30.

Campy 11 works with Shimano 9 (see two posts up). I've been using SR 11 speed levers with a dura ace 9 speed mech + cassette for some time; works great.

If it helps, I've done something similar (and cheaper?) on a couple of bikes:

- Campy Veloce shifters
- SRAM Exact Actuation derailleur
- Shimano 10-speed cassette.

Works really well, and no need for an 11-speed cassette.
