9 spd/10 spd front mech compatibility
« on: February 15, 2010, 01:07:48 pm »
My 105 front mech on my Shimergo'ed (9 spd) bike has bitten the dust.  Am i right in assuming that the cages on a 10 spd front mech will be to narrow and i'll be forever trimming the damn-thing?

Reason i ask is that some older Campag stuff is marketed as 9/10 spd whilst Shimano seems to be 10 spd only.  You can pick up Shimano 10 spd mechs a lot cheaper than the 9 spd stuff on t'internet....
Sheep we're off again.
