Record 10 Speed cass. spacers, is there an order?(7 posts)

Record 10 Speed cass. spacers, is there an order?maurizio

I took off my cassette to clean it up and upon putting it back on, I've noticed the shifting on the smaller cogs is off now. Did I install the spacers in a wrong order?
What gives?

It could be the spacers and or more likely the timing. The dots have to form a nice spiral, which ensures that the shifting ramps are one step forward on the next smaller cog.

It actually can't possibly be the "timing" Campy cogs (and Shimano for that matter) can only be placed on the freehub body in one position. It is likely to be the spacers, where the grooved spacers need to be on the bigger cogs.

I think it is physically possible to put the cogs onto an ED10 freehub incorrectly, but I believe there will be quite a bit of slop, as the little groove works in a hole that is too big for it. Poor shifting would be the least of your worries.

The spacers do indeed vary in thickness and need to be installed in the correct order...there is some good info on this at

a wire throught the cogs & spacers when I removed them, and closed the wire loop, so that I wouldn't have a problem on re-assembly.
