Mixing Shimano and SRAM drive train components
Here is the present set-up on my 2002 model year road bike. I am going to have to spend some money on this to get the shifting back to where it should be. I have a 9 speed Road Bike with a triple Shimano Ultregra crank. The middle cog is used the most, and it the noisiest and was dropping to the small ring. I have a Rear Shimano 105 derailleur and the cassette on the back is a Shimano 12-25 that is probably worn and needs replaced with a new chain. The chain I have is a SRAM 9 speed with the quick master link. I want to stay with something that has the master link- so Shimano chain (unless I purchase some other brand master link) is out. I am thinking of going with the following:
New Shimano SG 42 chain ring in the middle up front. A KMC X9.93 chain and a SRAM 12-26 rear cassette.
So any reason that the parts should not be mixed?

You can run a wipperman master link on a shimano chain. Their master links are way better than any I have used.http://coldsmokechronicles.blogspot.com

Between Shimano and SRAM chains, chainrings, and cassettes are interchangeable. You can use a Shimano chain with a SRAM powerlink (or any other similar quick link). But that requires buying the link and the chain separately.

Just 3rding what's already been said.
I believe the only thing you can't mix is shifters and rear derailuers.No longer stuck.
