|American Classic Cassette for Shimano-Campy Conversion||Kenny|

|I am thinking of a new set of Mavic Cosmos CD wheels. Does anyone have experience using the American Classic cassette that enables a Shimano-only hub (like that on the Mavic Cosmos)to convert to Campy ten speed; reliability, shift quality, etc?
Thanks in advance.
|That seams to be an expensive solution

|I have, and really like, a set of Cosmos (not CD), but spending $90 periodically to use a $230 wheelset seems rather expensive. When I had Campy I had a set of Rolf Vectors. They worked very well and came in a Campy version. They're no longer made (I think) and probably can be picked up at less than or near $230.
As far as your original question, I have not used an Am Classic cassette. Mavic and Wheel Manufacturing also make Shimano to Campy conversion cassettes. Both are just as expensive.

|I have used the Wheels Mfg. version for 8 months (approx. $130.-) and am very pleased. Very smooth and reliable, worth the money. I tried the AC only for a short ride and didn't feel much difference in performance.
Seems the workmanship on the Wheels is of a little higher quality, though. Those rebuilt Ultegra cogs look awfully nice...

|I agree with Seyboro, my
wheels cassette has been perfect. Some on this board have knocked the weight but Im using it on a set of Classics Pros that are my heavy wheels to start with. The shifting has been as good as my chorus cassette.
