compatibility of campy shifters and shimano cranks(3 posts)

compatibility of campy shifters and shimano cranksSDR

I have one, hopefully simple, question. Are campy shifters compatible with shimano cranks? I would think you could set the front der. so that it would make the correct throw when changing gears in front. Therefore it should not matter what shifters you have. Am I guessing wrong here?

Had a friend who wanted campy but couldn't get a short enough crank. She put a Dura Ace crank and works fine.
not a problemTig

I used to use Campy cranks with Shimano shifters and derailleurs. As long as the shifters match the derailleurs (brand and number of cogs or chainrings), you should be in good shape.
