Quick question. Will an Ultegra 9 speed cassette work with a Campy Veloce 9 speed derraileur.

I've seen a Dura Ace 9 speed cassette work with a Record 9 speed rear derailleur. I know Ultegra and Dura Ace are the same specs, so if Veloce and Record 9 are as well, then it should work.

I guess you know that the bigger problem is the spacing differences between Campy shifters and Shimano cassettes. The derailleur doesn't care what the spacing is.

I recently bought a Power Tap Pro wheel for road training during the winter/spring. The Power Tap hub is only Shimano compatible, but I was running a full Campy Record 9-spd gruppo. After reading through the RBR archives and various other groups, I bought a 9-spd Ultegra cassette and 9-spd Dura-Ace chain. Fortunately, I haven't had any issues with it. Granted, all of my riding thus far has been on an indoor trainer, so no real-World testing has been done.

FWIW, there is a slight amount of chatter, but all things considered, isn't too bad. You'll need to adjust the derailleur to accomodate the new cassette cog spacing. I found that adjusting for the middle cog instead of the 1st and 2nd, split the difference between the high and low gears. Fine-tuning for the first 2 smallest cogs results in a very chattery upper cogs.
