I did not know this. So my Extralite Ultra Rear SX version 2.0 where I specified 11spd Shimano, will also take any Campy 11sp?

I just looked on the little yellow sheet and it says "Cassette: Campagnolo or Shimano /Sram"

They all do the job just fine. I would decide this primarily based on what other bikes I have because I want the option to easily swap wheels and other things. My wife and I have chosen to standardize on Shimano, but in my heart I know we would be just fine with the others. I do know that each of them have their own aspects that you will either love or hate, so you just need to try them all out. I dislike the visceral shift action of SRAM but I know others feel at home with it.

Campy SR on that frame. Anything else will not be right.

I think Shimano still has the best functioning bicycle components. Perhaps the better decision is which shifter / brake lever fits your hand better....since both campy and SRAM function good also.

Exactly!!! Italian components made in Romania on an Italian bike made in China or Taiwan. The way God intended it. :beerchug:
