Can I match a chorus 9-speed rear deraileur with Daytona 9-speed shifters? I am thinking about upgrading the shifting system on my bike but don't want to buy the whole setup if I don't have to. The Daytona shifters seem to work fine. Just thinking about this.

Yes, but.....Onrhodes

Yes you can. But you need to make sure that you have a 2001 shifter with a 2001 Rear Derailluer. If you try using a 2001 (shifter or derailluer) with anything earlier it will not work properly. Campagnolo has changed the parallelogram on the rear derailuer for 2001, and a change in the internal ratchet on the shifter. Son the 2001 year shifter and derailluer will not work with anything earlier.
