    Lightbulb Campy 12 to Eagle RD via Shiftmate 2

    Has anyone tried this yet? JTEKís compatibility chart page claims itís a viable combination, but I canít find anyone whoís done it. I have read that Campy shifters struggle overcoming clutch tension with other Shiftmate setups and Sram RD's post type 2 make clutch tension adjustment difficult (might be a dealbreaker). I could also try an XTR 9100 according to JTEK's chart, but I'd rather not pick up a new $260 RD in addition to $300 Record shifters just to give this a try. I'm dreaming up a 1x gravel build and I know I can pair Magura calipers with campy hydros, but an RD to pair with a wide range cassette is more of a mystery. As an aside, can anyone comment on the left shift pawl accessibility in the 12 speed stuff? I haven't touched anything Campy since the rebuildable 10S stuff, but I've removed pawls from Sram hydro levers and cut them out of Shimano's (to use the left shifter and a dropper remote).

    I haven't been happy with shiftmate in the past. I wouldn't go through this hassle just to get campy brakes.

    Just go Sram Force/RED eTAP AXS. It works really well.

    Why wouldn't you just get Di2 shifters and a mountain bike Di2 rear derailleur? You can use a wide range of 11speed cassettes from Shimano or Sram.

    Or the new Sram AXS groupset which is designed for this exact purpose.

    I love Campag but I struggle to see why you'd hack something together rather than use components designed for this use
