ksyrium wheels with campy 10 cassettetr

This has probably been covered but please bring me up to speed. Are there any possible problems with a campy 10 and ksyrium. I assume most people are using spacer kits. I have heard of people running dura ace cassettes though. Am i correct that Ksyrium's are not offered with campy free hub.

you can swap cassette carriersLuis

And if you're looking at wheels you already have, or are thinking about some used ones, you can order Campy cassette carriers from Mavic and swap them. I think I heard that the price was ~$50, and it takes some skill to do the swap--at least to do it without losing some of the small bits inside.
Buy a Wheels manuf Accelerator cassetteTour de Lance

Costs $100 for the Ultegra and about $180 for the D/A. Its an aftermarket cassette remachined by Wheels manuf and it is compatible with Campy 9/10 drivetrains. It is a remachined Shimano cassette which gives you the necessary cog spline to run any Shimano compatible hub wheelset. Go to Branfordbikes.com (they are huge Campy supporters) and many of the guys their run this cassette on their Campy drivetrain in order to get access to all the wheelsets on the market most of which are Shimano only compatible. Just make sure you use either a Shimano Ultegra, D/A or Rholoff chain when you use this cassette, it won't work well with the Campy chains.
