10 speed on old campa hub(2 posts)

10 speed on old campa hubger
Nov 7, 2001 2:43 AM
I have a set of old Campa Zonda wheels with 8speed body.
20 standard spokes front and rear.
I want to use this wheelset with Campa 10 speed so I need to change the body. Campa says changing bodies can only be done with the standard hubs and not with the Campa wheelsets.
I notice however no difference between the Zonda hubs and standard hubs except for the number of holes.
Can anyone give me advice?

Check their webpage at www.branfordbike.com. If you can't find an answer there, call them. They are THE source of information for Campagnolo compatibility issues. With that said, I think I can answer your question. If I recall correctly, the answer depends on the style of hub on your wheels. If you have the newer straight pull spokes you're out of luck; if you have the conventional elbow spokes then you should be able to swap a 9/10 speed cassette body onto your wheel. Campagnolo says no, but it's been done successfully. I have a set of older Shamals that I need to change as well, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Branford has told me that my wheels (with elbow spokes) can be rebuilt with the 9/10 speed cassette body.
