Wheelset for Campy Chorus 8 Speed(3 posts)

Wheelset for Campy Chorus 8 Speedpbrrod
Mar 2, 2003 11:12 PM
I have a Campangolo Chorus 8 speed. I am looking for a good wheelset for this set-up. My first priority is a mavic Ksyrium. I am also having problems on how will the hubs of the new wheelset fit my chorus cassette. Due to the limited campy compatible parts here in Manila...

pleas send me your suggestion or comments

thanks in advance

I also run chorus 8 speed and just got a new wheelset. American Classic hubs with Velocity Aerohead rims. The hub is 9 speed so I used a Wheels manufacturing spacer kit and a 9 speed loose cog cogset (Veloce). I dropped one cog and replaced the spacers with the Wheels Manufacturing spacers and after a minor turn to the barrel adjuster on the derailleur the shifting is as good as before. I'm sure that as long as the freehub is Campagnolo compatible any wheelset will work.

Another option is to get a wheel with a Shimano hub. Get a Shimano 8 Speed cassette and a Wheels Mfg. spacer kit (red).
