I have a Campag 8 speed setup on my bike from about 97' which still runs great but the drivetrain needs replacing. Getting hold of a new 8 spd cassette does not seem too troublesome but Will current campag 9 speed derailluers work with this? I have heard that they use the same width of chain.

Any advice would be most welcome,
Cheers

per this excellent resource (http://www.campyonly.com/phpBB2/index.php) the 8spd / 9spd rear mech geometry seems to be different (movement per cable pull). that said, do you really need to replace the mech? maybe just the jockey wheels?

in any case, i ride campy 8 as well and highly recommend the SRAM 8spd chain with your fresh set of campy cogs. my shifting improved dramatically over the sachs chain i'd been running.

fwiw,

dookie

This remains the best resource I've found.
