Campy 10spd cassette by Mavic(3 posts)

Now that I am seriously considering moving from Shimano to Campy (on my primary bike at least), I have a query about the Mavic 10spd cassette. I have a pair of Ksyriums with the M9 cassette body (Shimano HG). I understand Mavic makes a cassette for this body which is Campy 10 compatible. Does anyone have experience with using this Mavic cassette?

I used a CC10 with a Cane Creek wheel, which presented somebill

troubling compatibility problems; i.e., the LBS couldn't get more than 9 cogs on the hub. Even the 9 cogs were not as smooth (out of the box) as the 10 sp. Wheels Mfg. cassette I ended up using. Presumably the Mavic product will have no compatibility problems with a Mavic hub, and I can imagine that, after breaking in, the Mavic would have ended up as smooth as the Wheels. In fact, despite my mostly negative comments, I'm sure it'll work fine.

I have the same combo, only because I cannot get a hold of a Campy cassette body from Mavic. I have over 1000 miles on them, they work fine, but I dont think they shift as well as Campy cassettes.
