Does anyone know if the new shimano ultegra 6700 sti's are compatible with an old ultegra 10 speed rear mech and a 105 front mech??

    why shouldnt they be?

    1) have used campag, sram and shimano front derailluers with shimano sti front lever - frand is irrelevent here. (same the other way)

    will work with the older rear 10 speed

    Officially 6700 front much be paired with 6700 shifters. This is largely due to the increased chainring spacing on the 6700/7900 chainsets. an the increased need for more cable pull or different front mech geometry.

    However any old mech will probably be fine.
    I like bikes...
