Hi - I need a new rear mech to go with my Campagnolo 9 speed ergo's, the options with Campagnolo are pretty limited starting with very over priced Xenon's. The question is could I buy a shimano 9 speed rear mech and be sure it would work?
Many thanks

    I think so, the xenon stuff is terrible. I've used it before.

    Shimano mechs use a different cable pull ratio so that won't work.

    Something like this is probably the best option. Unlike Xenon there are no nasty plastic bits on Veloce.

    You could google "shimergo" and see what u find out - but it's a bodge. Get a velice mech and do it properly.
