    What F+R derailleurs with Sora shifters?

    I am putting together a cyclcrossish commuter. I was hopping to get some nice 105 or Ultegra shifters, but they were out of the budget for this build. So I settled with some Sora 8 speed shifter. Hopefully they will be fine for me. Right now I have Deore front and rear derailleurs. They are fine but I would like to upgrade to some 5500 era 105 or 6500 era Ultegra deraillure. Should the Sora shifters function well with these derailleurs? Any problems that I am overlooking?

    They will work fine with any Shimano MTB 7/8/9 rear derailleurs and any Shimano Road 7/8/9/10 rear derailleurs. You will have the best front shifting performance with a Shimano Road front derailleur.
