hi folks, just wondering if I can hook up a set of shimano 600 8 speed shifters to a campy mech and 8 speed cassette? will the index match up? or do campy use a different spacing than shimano? (I know that campy and shimano cassette's need different free hub bodies, but I think thats the only differance?)

Cheers

Patrick

The simple answer is no, the system you propose won't index properly. For a detailed explaination see Chris Juden's article on mixing and matching indexed shifting components
