Hi there.

A friend have a set of Shamal 1996 8sp wheels. Last week he broke the flange of the rear wheel hub. These wheels are 16 blades spokes built to a hub that look like the 8sp record or Chorus standard hubs. I have a spare 8sp 32-hole Campy Chorus rear hub. Could he rebuild the Shamal wheel using this hub?.

Kind regards

Just skip every other hole (like you didn't know that). I used a set of shamals recently that had a new record 32 hole hub swapped in. Just be sure to measure the old hub to the new hub so you get the right length spokes (or see if you can re-use the original ones).
