Ksyrium M10 hubs with Campy?(6 posts)

Ksyrium M10 hubs with Campy?cvcyclist

Here's a question that's I need aswered. I've got Campy 9 spd and want to upgrade my wheels to Ksyrium Elite. There are lots of Shimano compatible (M10) sets on ebay. Will those work with Campy or do I have to get ED10 hubs? Mavic's tech section of website seems to say that M10 with Mavic's own cassette will work with 9 and 10 speed Campy. Any thoughts or advice?

There are a few options:

(1) Use the M10 cassette from Mavic - it's expensive and doesn't shift as flawlessly as Campy or Shimano.

(2) Use the M10 freehub with a Wheels Manufacturing reworked shimano cassette (the "Accelerator" cassette).

(3) Replace the M10 freehub with an ED10 freehub - this is do-able with some (more recent) Ksyriums, but I don't believe it works with the first year models (I could be wrong).

Works flawlessly - indestinguishable performance from my other wheel with a campy casette.

but then you have to use a Mavic cassette. Try walking into a bike shop and ask to see their selection. If they got it then just hand over your credit card..the one with the very high limit ;)
I found that the Wheels Mfg conversion cassette worked betterbill

than the Mavic, which didn't work very well (mostly because the LBS couldn't fit the 10th cog on my hub), but that neither worked as well as Campy (got rid of the wheels with the Shimano hub, got a Campy hub). Campy shifts a bit crisper.
The Wheels Mfg conversion cassette actually worked fairly well, even so. Want it? 11-25.

Any LBS can order an ED10 cassette portion of the hub for around 50 dollars straight from Mavic USA. Swapping them out takes all of 5 or 6 min. Tools needed are 1 5mm and 1 10mm Allen wrench.
Mine was ordered on a Monday and the shop had it by Thursday. It's cheaper than dicking around with conversion cassettes which may or may not work as well as the real thing.
