...in 9-speed system? Will they work? Same cable pull on sifters? My CC-bike need new ones and I have run out os 3 sets Shimano STI's in 2 year's and it start getting costly. 2Xultegra+one 105) Rear derailer's sifter on that sifts smaller gets always "loose" over the time and dost sift well.

Thanks,Samu

Campy shifters don't have the same cable pull as shimano.

At the minimum, a campy rear derailleur must be used.

The cog spacing is also different. The shimano cassette won't deliver the best shifting, if used with a campy shifter and derailleur.
