CAAD10, mix n match

I’ve stripped this bike down and rebuilt it several times now, but I can’t seem to get rid of it. Very much enjoying its current configuration. Nice to have another zippy bike for weeknight crits/rain or when the Breadwinner needs a rest.

Everything on the bike came from my parts bin, except the shifters. It’s set up with Campagnolo 10-speed shifters, SRAM f/r derailleurs, and Shimano chain, cassette, and brakes. It shifts very crisply with an extremely satisfying noise signaling a succesful change. Wheels are 32 spoke Powertap/Hed Belgiums, though I almost never ride with a head unit any more so I just pretend I’m doing a lot of watts and that works great.

Highly recommend the Campy/SRAM combo for anyone into experimentation.

I wouldn’t have guessed or even tried to make that combo work. Kudos to you!

Where did you get the bar tape? I’d like to wrap a couple bars with this.

I can’t remember where I first learned about it, but 10-speed Campy and Sram use very similar pull ratios. I think maybe Zinn has addressed this before?

Tape is from Manual for Speed. Available here.
