Campy 8 speed cassette with 9 speed ergos?
edited December 2014
As the title really, Will an 8 speed cassette work with 9 speed shifters?
No, unless you apply some modifications.
-Clamp cable closer to the outside of the derailleur.
-Mount a Shiftmate.
..or fit some 9-speed spacers
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
Often components will work with each other. I have Shimano 8 sp bar end shifters working well with 9 sped Campag cassette and rear mech. There is a sprocket at the end I can't get, but the rest index well! Give it a go. the tolerances in 8 and 9sp aren't much different. Give it a go!

Some things work good, some don't.
If the "pitch"difference is 0,4 mm (8-9 speed) it won'work properly, I wouldn't even try.
