All,

I've seen converters to allow Campagnolo spacing on a Shimano spline for 10 speed but I want to go the other way. I have a wheel with a Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed freehub (that is no longer made) and I want to run it now on a bike with 9 speed Dura Ace. Is there any way of doing this?

Thanks

A

buy a veloce cassette, replace the spacers with something around 2.6 mm thick. This way you'll get 4.35mm spacing, only the first cog will be 4.55mm further apart, but does not count, it'll just work fine.

by the way, I've recently re-spaced a 9speed cogset with 2.2mm thick spacers to shimano 10speed.

I've had a spare 10speed starter cog at my disposal and an additional last cog from a former cassette of mine. Now it's spaced 3.95mm all the way, save the first cog.

works like a charm. :thumbup:

you can do this for 9speed spacing too, with 2.6mm thick spacers. I got the 1st and last cog given by the lbs for free (they had it from an older replaced cassette)

Wow I love this forum for the wealth of technical information...

I might even have a 9 speed Veloce cassette somewhere...

if you are not able to get 2.6mm spacers, you can also use 2.5mm bottom bracket spacers, those going to work as well.

internal diametre 35mm, thickness 2.5mm

it'll rresult in 4.25mm spacing, but a little overshift is very well tolerated generally.

And that will save me some money... Just found a pack of 10 for £2.50 instead of about £3 each for 2.6mm....
