    Record 10 Carbon rear derailleur with 12-27?

    Hi campy owners,

    Will a short caged Campy record 10 rear derailleur work with a 12-27 10 spd cassette capacity wise? or should i go for a Med. caged derailleur?

    yes, for those of you that guessed it, I am out to commit sacrilidge, my new build is Campy Record 10 Carbon Shifters, and Derailleurs, with Shimano DA10 crankset, cassette, chain, shimano compat-wheels, and JTEK shiftmate to make it all shift together

    You will probably have a very hot afterlife, but hey it's your choice... ;)

    I've never tried a 12-27, but my 12-25 works great with my short cage Record and I'm certain I could use a 27 with no problems.YMMV

    Thanks for the reply

    does anyone know for sure? i know that campy doesn't make a 12/27 10spd std like shimano does, and the Shimano DA10 RD short cage does 12/27 fine.......so shouldn't the Record 10 RD make it also?

    Yeah I know i'm going to burn in hell.........but i really might just be creating the best of both worlds with my Shimano / Campy mix.......hopefully.

    I use a short cage RD and switch wheels from 11-23 to 13-29 and everything in between. No problems. Just make sure your chain is long enough (but no longer) for big-big and go.

    I'm using the short cage RD with a Campy casette modified to 12x29.

    No problems.
