Campagnolo Potenza HO compatibility

Afternoon all.
Can anyone on here advise if Campagnolo Potenza HO groupset is generally compatible with traditional rim brake framesets ?
I'm sure I read somewhere that the shifters and mechs are "optimised" for disc brake setup and wondered if it can be transferred to a rim set up (the obvious issue with changing brakes aside)

Thanks in advance

    I'm pretty sure it's fine...IIRC it's to do with disc brakes meaning slightly wider rear hub spacing and therefore the chainrings are set a tiny bit further out from the BB to compensate (better chainline)...something like that. But not enough to cause an issue with a regular frame.

    Thanks I'd hoped not

    Campag cable pull for brakes works with campag brakes and some other. Shimano brakes use longer cable pull.
