Shimano 600 hub with 105 derailer?(3 posts)

Shimano 600 hub with 105 derailer?JasonS

I have a 10 or so yr old Panasonic DX-3000. Tange-2 CroMo, 105 group with biopace. Back a couple years ago while touring northern Italy I destroyed my rear wheel (aria rims). At the time I didn't have too much money so I replaced it with a cheap Italian wheel. Now that wheel is toast, it just won't keep true for anything, even for 1 ride. Because I have a 6 speed, non-cassette, freewheel my options are limited. Have the wheel rebuilt with the existing hub (would cost over $100) or find a good used 105 compat. 6 speed wheel (not easy to do..). I found a 600 6 speed wheel with Wolber Alpine rims on it for a very reasonable price and I'm wondering if the 600 and 105 are compatible. I know the current shimano groups are relitively iinterchangeable and my components and this wheel are about the same age. Any help is appreciated.

No problem. Alot of the pre 9 speed DA stuff was different from the other groups,but 6 speed 105/600 works fine together.
