My front deraileur on my bike is in need of replacement. I have a 10 speed 105 drivetrain. Can I use replace the front deraileur with ultegra 11 speed 6800 or is 10 speed 6700 nessesary? Thanks for th help.
Not sure it will make any difference.
I recently got my old 90's Bianchi back on the road. I replaced the old worn out Campy Ergo's with some NOS 7700 (9 speed) STI's that I had laying around. I had a good rear derailleur, chain, wheels, and a few cassettes, but I only had a clamp on 7700 front derailleur, not a braze on. The only braze on that I had, that was not being used, was an old early 80's Campy Super Record, made for friction shifting. I thought that it could never work with an indexed system, but I gave it a try.
I was shocked that it worked perfectly, and that I could even shift out of the saddle.
Maybe I just lucked out, but I've done things like this before, and they always have worked for me.
