    Shimano 5700 105 front shifter With 5800 105 front derailleur ?

    The shifters are 10 and the FD is 11 but what about the new longer arm 5800 FD. Will it work? Having some trouble adjusting.
    Thanks!

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    This has been covered again and again. And probably a few more times. No, it won't work properly w/ that combination. Yes, the shifter will move the derailleur but not the right amount. You'd be better off w/ a 5700 or 6700 front derailleur if you want to use that shifter.

    Nope. 11-speed derailleurs not compatible with 10-speed shifters. The 11-speed components use a different cable pull.
