I'm currently building a bike, transfering bits from my old bike to a newframe. I'm wanting to swap from flats to drops but keep the 10 speed wide ratio cassette on the back. Would campag veloce shifters work with a deore shadow rear mech? And a sora front mech?
Thanks for your help,

    Without getting into a huge discourse, mixing and matching different brands of shifters and gear mechanisms usually requires some sort of 'fix' e.g. adding a JTek Shiftmate or a Hubbub 'bodge'.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Before thinking about gears - what sort of brakes do you have? if you have v-brakes on the flat-bar - you'll probably have issues getting either STIs or Ergos to operate them properly.
