Anyone know if a 7spd Ultegra front derail. will work OK with a 9 spd Ultegra STI shifter, chain & crank ?

It'll work, but it won't be OK, depending on your definition of OK. the chain and chainring spacing is narrower on 9 sp., so your shifts won't be crisp and you'll probably be fiddling around a bunch to get it to trim out. Why not just buy a 9 sp front der. they're around $30?

....check the angle of the opreating arm that the cable attaches to relative to the cage. If arm is perpendicular to cage,, its STI compatible,not likely since there was no ultegra 7 speed STI.
