Hello, I am pretty new to Weight Weenies, but I got some great wrenching advice here and I want to introduce myself and my Colnago C60 61CM Traditional PLWH bike.

It’s a bit unusual in that the drivetrain is a combination of Campagnolo and SRAM components. Since I was born a long time ago, and the terrain I ride sometimes includes 20% gradients I wanted a lowest gear ratio comparable to my 2001 Trek 5900 triple which has a 32 largest cog on the cassette, resulting in a .9375 : 1 gear ratio.
I also wanted to bike to be as authentic Italian as possible, so I tried to use a Super Record 11 drivetrain to the degree possible. Of course since Campy doesn’t make MTB drivetrains or road triples any longer, I had to incorporate either a Shimano or SRAM cassette. I calculated that a 36T cog combined with a Campy 34T small chainring would result in a .9444 :1 gear ratio. I was unable to find any Shimano 11 speed cassettes with a 36T largest cog, although there were some with even larger cogs. The only 11 speed cassette with a 36T largest cog was the SRAM PG-1170.
I learned through an excellent article at the link below, that a SRAM (Exact Actuation) 10 Speed Mountain derailleur paired with a SRAM 11 speed Road shifter would work with the SRAM PG-1170 cassette.http://blog.artscyclery.com/science-beh ... atibility/
Here's a pic of the mixed OEM shifters:
