Hello guys,

I'm in need of some wrenching advise.

I want to put some Zondas http://www.swimcyclerun.com/wheelsroad/campagnolo-zonda-clincher-wheelset-with-shimano-hub.html(Shimano hub version) on my bike its a Carrera tdf and has an 8 speed cassette on the back.

Zonda wheels are marked as 9,10 and 11 speed compatible.

Is it safe enough to put an 8 speed cassette on this wheel? Will it work?

Anything special I need to know about trying to do this?

Thanks
Code :beerchug:

The 9-10-11 compatible refers to a Campy freehub and Campy cassettes.

A shimano freehub will take an 8-speed Shimano cassette.

You are fine.
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
