Hi all,

As above, is this possible? My shifters are going to be SRAM due to the actuation ratio.

Cheers

Graham

If it's for the same number of gears, I believe it should work fine.

Shimano and SRAM share the same gear spacing, AFAIK.

Yes. If the shifters are deraileurs are paired, you're good. only issue might be the width of the FD cage if you're not going 10 speed.

Yes, it is. In fact on one bike I have a 105 crank, Tiagra bottom pull FD, and Rival shifters and it works fine. A SRAM rear der and Shimano shifters or vice/versa will not work.

Generally, the minimum compatibility you need to make it work is the RD + brifter combo + appropriate cog spacing. Or substitute the appropriate Shiftmate for the appropriate RD.

Obviously, you can use fewer cogs than you can shift. Most FDs will work with most brifters with the right crankset, but triple combos may be more fussy. Unless you're using old-school Ergos which shift similar to friction on the front.
