Shimano 10spd chain on a Campag 10spd bike?

Hi,

The bloke at Evans is adamant that a Campag 10spd chain will work completely fine on a bike equipped with a Campag 10spd groupset.

So I bought a replacement Ultegra chain for my Campag chain that snapped off this morning (grrr!) because it was the cheapest.

Did I do wrong? Will I have to go back and get my money back? Or did the guy do me a favour?

Cheers,
Andy

    If the Shimano chain is no wider than the Campag (I think they are narrower) it will work no problem.

    Erm, I should hope so.
  • Yep it seems to be a smooth as silk.
