I am building a new rig and wish to run Campagnolo 11 shifters and derailluer with a shimano 11 cassette and freewheel. Cable not EPS.
Heard it is technically possible, anyone out there actually running it?
i haven't built /bought wheels yet but shimano wheels opens a lot of options and their cassettes are 'cheaper' with better ranges.
Yes, i have seen the Campagnolo centaur 11-32 offering.
Thinking 1 x .
I will run Campagnolo regardless , just not sure on which wheels/hubs now there is possible choice.

it def works, I use a sram cassette on a shimano freehub on the trainer and a campag cassette on the road. I don't get any mis shifts etc. hard to give opinion on noise as its on the trainer.
I am running a 11 speed sram cassette on a 10 speed shimano hub with a few spacers behind the cassette, this is so that I dont have to get all fiddly with the gear cable adjustment when I swap wheels for the trainer. Does mean I only get 9 workable gears, but thats cause i spaced it outboard.
Many wheels also have the option of switching freehubs, probably a good reason to spec such a hub ?
regarding gearing all shimano 11 speed cassettes have a 11 tooth as the smallest gear with the following exceptions (I didn't want the 11 tooth as I'd never use it)
12-25 (25 is too small for my easiest gear)
14-28 (this is kinda interesting)
12-28 (dura ace only with dura ace price tag)
campag make a 11 speed 12-29 cassette (chorus its $150 not cheap but still cheaper than dura ace)

KGB wrote:AFAIK, the main problem previously was that Campag ran progressive spacing from one end of the cassette to the other, while Shimano/SRAM had linear cog spacing. With 11s, I believe the progressive spacing is gone and the tolerances between different systems are much smaller, allowing cross-brand combinations.
Campag still has unequal gear spacing with 11-sp, but due to the overall cassette width being virtually identical to Shimano/SRAM (Campag 10-sp. was considerably wider than S/S), the differences are a lot less apparent, so can be tuned out a lot better.
