Campagnolo/Shimano mix

Hi
My question is can I use a rear wheel with a Shimano ten speed cassette on my bike fitted with a Campagnolo rear mech.
Shifting is non indexed friction downtube levers. I’m guessing it will be okay but anyone else have experience of this?
Thanks for any help

BB30 bottom bracket observations

Just wondering what other people’s experience of BB30 bottom brackets has been. I ask as I bought a preowned cyclocross bike which had little use.I used it for a dry Paris Roubaix sportive and it’s not had hardly any other use since as I ride other bikes. When doing some general maintenance the othe...

Re: Hip replacement and cycling

[url][/url]Thanks for all your replies, I’m going to have it done I know it makes sense.
Regarding epidural and sedation are you aware of what’s going on or are you completely out of it. Think I’m going to go that route as recovery from anaesthetic is quicker I believe.

Re: Hip replacement and cycling

I’ve just turned 59 and have got my THR booked in for Sept. Having read the posts on here I’m encouraged about how people can get back to riding and achieve their personal goals. I’m nervous about it to say the least as road riding is my passion. But currently I’m getting frustrated by constant pain...

Does anyone know if this will work okay as I don't want to have to buy another longer cage rear mech if I don't need to. Lots ...
