Hello - first post
I want to move from compact to triple on one of my bikes for hilly rides.
I have 9sp 2004 veloce levers. I recently bought some 2011 veloce derailleurs which I believe have different pull ratio - fine on friction of course, but I'm guessing I will have problems with the ergos (should have done a little more research). My only other rear mech is a short cage 9sp centaur, so that's no good.
So I can get Comp or Champ rear derailleurs. The cage shape looks the same as my centaur mech...
1/ Do you think it will work? (I assume a 9sp chain will fit through the Comp rear mech's cage)
2/ Champ is cheaper - but it looks like it's plastic like the Xenon RDs which I heard bad things about - is it plastic or alloy? Any reliability issues?
