Quick compatibility question
I've got a 9 speed cassette and brifters, and I'm wondering if I will have any problems running the 9spd cassette with 10s (DA) brifters.

Any ideas? Comments from those running a similar setup appreciated. Thanks!

The spacing of 9 speed cassettes and 10 speed cassettes are different. The index points on the 10s brifters will be different from those on a 9s. Either need 9s brifters or 10s everything else.

If you are going to spring for 10s STI shifters (I refuse to use that ridiculous B-word) why not drop another $80 or so for an Ultegra 10s cassette and chain? That's all you need to change to make your bike 10 speed.

I would guess that you could also use a JTEK shiftmate. Look it up on google.

Of course, it's like $35 which is about half the price of a new cassette and chain.
