I just want to tell anyone that was wondering about mixing drivetrain components about my bike. I have a Campy mirage ergopower shifter set matched to a Shimano ultegra triple derailler and a nine speed derailler at the back. Crank set is a Ritchey triple mountain bike unit. It works perfectly and is just want I want : the ease of ergopower with the reliability and small parts service that comes with Campy. From Shimano I get cheaper parts on those that need replacing most often.
Just in case you hear the parts don't mix, well they do.

i'm running 9 speed ergopower shifters with a campy racing T crankset & front derailler on a phil wood BB with xtr rear derailler, xtr 12-34 cassette and dura ace chain. works great. first time with the ergo levers and i like them way more than STI. click, click, click......

I know that the SRAM ESP derailleurs won't work with Shimano shifters because of the difference in actuation ratios, but has anyone ever tried ESP with Campy?
