"StokedRad, the 11 speed campy levers work great on Shimano derailleurs and either 9 speeds or 10 speed cassettes, depending on how you route the cable.  The article that Mat linked to explains a bit about it. Basically by changing the way you…"

"Thank you guys for the awesome feedback. The 10spd Chorus on my road bike has served me fantastically and the new shape of the 11spd body looks like a nice improvement. Looks like I'll be giving the Shimergo setup a shot."

"I have used Shimagnolo, aka Shimergo, extensively, both rapid rise and normal, 8,9, and 10 speed.  I now have a bike set up with new 10 speed Veloce levers shifting 8 speed cogs on the rear with "normal" cable routing.…"

"I think the 11 speed shifters on a 10 speed drivetrain issue you refer to is NOT a Shimagnolo conversion.  I have found the Shimagnolo to be problem free. "

"I'm not a big fan of Campy for cross. I have a tendency to bump the thumb lever when I'm on the hoods and getting jostled around. Others might not have this issue. Another option would be using 10s Campy shifters with a Sram rear…"

Campy/Shimano together? Campy shifters for CX? Prices hard to resist.

In the past year, I've put my cross bike through a good amount of training, racing, and overall abuse. Crashes here and there and lots of mud and sand have messed up my shifters enough to warrant replacement. The original components are all Shimano, but my beloved road bike is Campagnolo equipped. I much prefer the look and feel of Campy, but a complete gruppo swap is much more than I'd like to spend. And not sure how Campy Ergopower shifters hold up in cx?BUT! I just came across something on…See More

Jim Lentfer replied to Mathew Shimoko's discussion Campy/Shimano together? Campy shifters for CX? Prices hard to resist.
"Can't speak to Campy 11, but I have rebuilt Campy 9 speed ergo levers several times (tons of miles on a road bike, and 5 seasons on the set on my cross bike).  Even bought a used pair to rebuild as a backup.  Parts are available.…"

StokedRad replied to Mathew Shimoko's discussion Campy/Shimano together? Campy shifters for CX? Prices hard to resist.
"As a Campy 11s user for road and cross, several things come to mind: 1) Super Record shifters are made to be lightweight and as such probably a bit fragile. If you are crashing and thrashing your cx bike, even at the discounted price, they do not…"

Matt Schwartz replied to Mathew Shimoko's discussion Campy/Shimano together? Campy shifters for CX? Prices hard to resist.
"I run full Campy for CX and have had no issues that i would blame squarely on it being campy, so I wouldn't have any hesitation in running these shifters.  I've had zero durability issues so far.  I also think they are well…"

Derek Yarra replied to Mathew Shimoko's discussion Campy/Shimano together? Campy shifters for CX? Prices hard to resist.
"After two years of having Sram drivetrains break down, and previous to that less than stellar experience with reliability on Shimano drivetrains, I decided to bite the bullet and go for a full Chorus 11s build last year. I traveled coast to coast,…"

andrew replied to Mathew Shimoko's discussion Campy/Shimano together? Campy shifters for CX? Prices hard to resist.
"I'm obviously biased in that I wrote some of that stuff, but I think Campy shifters hold up pretty well in cx, and pairing with a Shimano Low Normal (rapid rise) rear derailleur works nicely to: 1) make the ergonomics better for cx (downshift…"
