Ultegra n Dura Ace mix - advisable, doable?
Back again with another noobie question ..
So the gearing on my first Roadbuild is my next consideration and I'm pretty much 99% likely to run Dura Ace front and rear .. I've just been offered some unused Ultegra SL STI shifters though at a reasonable price.
My question is: Is it doable to run these Ultegra STI's with Dura Ace mechs and if so is it advisable?
I've mixed and matched Shimano stuff in the past on my old MTB and my commuter so I'm guessing so ... anyone know any different though?
Secondly, if mixing it all up is Ok, would it be wise to skimp on the Dura Ace front and switch to Ultegra (I'm thinking more about cash than owt else as the costs are racking up quickly). I've always run higher end rears than fronts ...
