Mixed Grouppo

Postby Crooty18 » Thu May 24, 2018 9:52 pm

I have a question. I’m in the process of restoring a Ricardo Elite SX but I want to run ultegra 6700 derailers front and rear. I also want to keep it as downtube shift So my question is, can I run arabesque friction shifters and can I run an arabesque crank? I am aware you can still get dura ace dt 10 speed shifters but the arabesque is sooo pretty.
I’m fairly new to this bike stuff so please be gentle.

I doubt the Arabesque sticks would have enough pull for a 10sp cassette.

I think da7900 is compatible with 6700. DA7900 dt sticks are readily available for around $80-$90 on the flea bay. ..
