Hello,

I can buy some wheels , but it have a campa body. I just ride with Shimano , does a Shimano casette fit on a campa body? Or does a campa castte fit on a Shimano group?

Thanks ,

Pieter!

Hello,

Shimano will only fit shimano, as campy will only fit campy.

They sell conversion cassettes, give that a shot.

If you match the numbers it will work.

Eg Campy 10speed hub with 10speed campy cassette with 10speed DA(everything else) Works!!

I have seen it work, and in a race when I get campy spare wheel(due to race support) it worked fine for me.

You'd need a Campy to Shimano conversion cassette, or swap freehub bodies. The spacing and splines are different. Won't fit, won't shift right.

You'd need a JTek shiftmate to correct the different shift throw length for Campy versus Shimano.

I'd use a Campy chain too... Shimano chains suck. Don't last long.
