Which lock ring should I use? The one that came with my campy cassette or the one that came with my Ksyriums? The one that came with the wheels is quite a bit lighter (I am not a weight weenie) but the campy one is nicer looking. Do they funcion the same?

They are interchangeable. Looks don't make much difference there, do they? It's sort of hidden.

If you use a lock ring made for a 12 tooth on an 11 tooth small cog, the chain might hit it some. If you use a ring made for an 11 tooth on a 12, it might not be quite as secure as it should. I've used them pretty much interchangeably, though.

Not much functional difference between brands, though.
