hello there.
It seems to me that your rear mech is a 10s Dura Ace 7800 actuated by 10s Campy Ergopower. Did you interpose a Shiftmate to get the correct matching?

good eye! It's actually a Ultegre 6700 rear derailleur iirc. The jtek shiftmate worked great, but I replaced the ergopowers with a proper shimano 105 set. The veloce shifters just felt cheap in the hand. I'd like to give the shimergo setup another go with centaur or better next time around.

Hi Chad!
Thanks for letting me know.
I agree with you about Veloce Ergopower: too much plastic.
If you ever decide to buy Ergopower again I suggest you to give a look at the exploded view of the Ergos on Campy web site: Centaur and Veloce have the same inner mechanism so that the only difference is the brake lever. Athena has a similar mechanism but it's 11s.
Chorus, Record e Super Record spins on two bearings and feature a different mechanism so probably they do not feel cheap in the hand.
By the way I didn't wrote your bike is terrific as it is obvious...
