so, I'd be brief.

I'd build up a bike with 10spd parts, due to the low cost of 10spd cassettes-chains (and availability of 13-26 ratios)

I'd definitely pick new 10spd veloce shifters, due to the lever shape&eps style buttons, but I'm torn what rear derailleur shall I choose. According to official recommendations, these new power shift levers should not be mixed with older 10spd components (eg.: older record-chorus from 2008). Should I just stick to the official recommendations, or can I combine the new levers with old chorus rear derailleur?

thanks in advance for the input. :welcome:

I believe it would work in terms of actuation ratios, but the major difference is in the spring tension.

I have a current Veloce 10-spd setup, which works excellently. It is surprisingly good. My advice, and because Veloce stuff is so reasonably priced, is to go with the matching RD.

There is also a 13-29 if you want. And there was an excellent 12-30 in Centaur which you may find around.|s28JFwVLp_dc|pcrid|55959038492|pkw||pmt||prd|468398CA

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

I use miche cassettes as there infinate options. Got a 16-29T on one of my 10 speed campag bikes. Veloce 10 speed works very well.

Thanks. I have 12/25 and 13/26 as well. I live in a am

Flat area, so the finer the better, that is why i mainly choose 13/26.
