Here is what I want to do. Please give me some advice. I hate Shimano shift levers, so I want to use Campy Ergo levers with a Shimano derailluer. Will it work?

Funny that you ask...I just read this in "Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance." He says that as long as both are nine speed, it should work. They were entirely incompatible until recently, but the throws are now the same. I don't know for sure, since I have never tried this. Maybe someone else will have some pratical input.

Funny you should ask...

I'm currently running 8-speed with Sachs (Campy) Ergo for the same reason. I've heard very good reports about Shimano-9 cassette, chain, FD/Campy-9 Ergo, RD systems. And I've just read an article (reference is on my home PC, alas) that describes how to set up C10 Ergos with otherwise Shimano 9-speed systems.

When I finally upgrade to S9, I will have Chorus 10-speed shifters on my bike.
