Anyone out there run Heliums with a campy (or mavic) cassette? What is your opinion on this?
Thanks in advance for you input

You cannot put a Campy cassette on a Helium. You need to get a Wheels Mfg ( cassette (9 or 10 spd) assuming you have Campy drivetrain.This is what I did. The Mavic M10 cassette is another option if you have 10 spd Campy drivetrain, but I don't think the Helium's freehub has the required longer M10 free hub. Otherwise if you have a Shimano drivetrain its much cheaper to put on a Shimano cassette

well if you are lucky enough like me, you may be able to put a DA 9 speed (if u have 9) cassette on and use campy ergos. That's just what I did last week. I upgraded to Chorus 9 speed and almost bought the wheels manufacturing cassette, but a friend had a DA cassette and it works flawlessly. Also, I'm using a HG92 chain. Good luck.

Depending upon what you are running, you can get a cassette body from Mavic for an 8 Speed Campy set-up. I have a friend who bought heliums at a swap meet and they had this body. Since he runs Shimano, he had to buy the Shimano compatible cassete body to make them work for him. The Campy/Shimano 9 speed differences are minimal and will work with each other without problems. I have no advice for a 10 speed set-up.
