Hello from Japan !

Hi

I've been riding for about four years, and still I'm proving slowly. I ride 1982 Maruishi Empire triathlon, with shimano 105 5700. Recently I've been thinking of upgrading to better groups. However I'm still in university and money is low. So as an alternative I'm thinking of mix and matching.

I'm thinking of using Campagnolo Athena crank set, veloce front derailleur, Athena rear derailleur, Shimano 105 5700 10 speed cassettes and chain with bottom tube shifter.

I know that some really dislike the mix and matching of campagnolo and shimano but due to lack of funding I'm thinking of going with this.

I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a conformation that this mix works or another alternative.

thanks !

Loshin

Yokoso to the forums loshino,
There is nothing wrong with mixing and getting your bike on the road.....the last time I was in Japan I saw lots of bikes left at the universities, lots of dust and there for many years. I often think about the early bikes I saw there and what would happen to them. Sendai and Tokyo had lots of stuff.
Yoroshiku, Ben
