Will a bottom pull 10 speed shimano FD work with a campy 10 speed shifter?
I have ultegra 10sp FD that has a 28.6 clamp and would like to use it on the monster cross so I do not have to look for a campy FD in 28.6.
If not I do have a shimano braze on adapter and some campy FD's that I could use.
Just looking at my options at the moment as campy quite making the braze on adapters some years ago.

What ergo levers? If it's the non-positional type that worked for a double of triple, it should work great.

It may also work with the positional type, but I have not tried it.

The shift/brake levers are some older chorus 10 speed silver alloys from about '02/'03. I think they will work but am not 100% positive.
If not I do have some 10 speed braze-on FD with a shimano adapter but I hate to put them on a bike that will be used in the gravel,dirt and maybe a bit of mud.

That era campy will shift about any front derailleur. It will work great.
