|I don't think so. Sachs 8-speed spacing was the same as Shimano--one reason Shimano riders cover Sachs New Success shifters, which are the same as Record 8-speed, but with a modified shifting disk.
So--I don't think you can mix the two and get optimal results.

|Andy is right - sachs is Shim spaced, unless they do a Campy one I don't know about - pretty sure not.|

|I've been using a Sach 8 speed freewheel with CAMPY 8 speed drive train without problem. Using it mainly on a Disc wheel on a time trial bike with CAMPY 8 speed(Record) down tube shifters and an Athena 8 speed rear derailleur and it works great. The chain is a Sach PC 51 8 speed chain which works well. Sach's 7 speed freewheel also works fine with Campy 8 speed drive train. The only problem was getting the Disc wheels dropout spacing correct (130mm) for 8 speed
system, older freewheel hub spoked wheels may have dishing problems if someone were to convert them to 8 speed as well as potential for "bent" axles if anxle length is expanded.

|My understanding is that there are two models - one with Shimano spacing and one with Campagnolo. IIRC the spacers are different colors (black/brown?). Not sure which is which though.|| |
