Quick question; I have two sets of
Wheels which I want to switch from shimano 10 to campy 11.

One set is farsports with the ED hubs. The second are BIkeHubStore SL218's (from memory).

Are the campy/shimano freehubs interchangeable? Also, are they the same freehub on both (I think ED are made by bitex too).

Finally, any advice where I might source some from in UK or Europe - can get from BHS but don't want to run the risk on duty costs

is the shipping from farsports too high?

I think they carry bitex hubs and parts.

You can get Bitex hubs and freehubs in Europe.

Superb - many thanks! Hopefully they can confirm comparability too.

@beancounter. Within the EU the price will include VAT at 20%. Buying from the US or Taiwan will not include any sales taxes.

Is the risk of paying duty, and the possible amount, worth that much more than the 20% that you pay for sure within the EU?

I completely agree and that was the reason for question. Just I couldn't find any eu retailers. Racotec is cheaper as well!

Price tags in EU are with VAT included. There are no additional costs, except shipping.

If the buyer has his adress outside EU, he can deduct VAT from the price tag.
