Reading about canti brakes, some levers work, some don't.

Ultegra double/10 STI's with Shimano BR 550 canti brakes, work well?

Where have you read that some levers don't work with cantilevers? Just curious, because while there are some brake types that don't work well with standard levers, cantis are not among them, IME. Cyclocross bikes almost exclusively use cantilever brakes and standard road levers.

I'm using ultegra 10spd w/ some old avid tri-aligns & diacompe 987's, works fine.:thumbsup:
oh yeah, I also threw on some inline adjusters (jagwire) to make it easier to fine tune.

you should see the Frankenstein a mate has built up as his commuter bike.
Sram Rival front and rear derailleurs
Shimano Ultegra crank
Shimano Dura Ace breaks
Campy (not sure which) shifters

He calls it his Srampagano
