Campy freehub to Shimano Can I? How? Where?bikenj

I need to convert a Campy 10speed freehub to accept a 9 speed Shimano cassette.

Can I?
How do I?
Where can I get the parts if I can?

Thanks
Buy a new freehub body....Spunout

branfordbike.com has freehub bodies for campagnolo hubs. Just swap it out. I assume you are using a campagnolo hub.

Mavic, Zipp, Hugi, others have their own proprietary freehub bodies for which you will require the proper part.

Shimano hubs can only use shimano cassettes. The campagnolo people like it better that way ;-)
Just buy a Campy 9 spd cassetteflakey

If you are trying to use a Campagnolo wheel with a Shimano 9 speed drivetrain you can just put a Campagnolo 9 speed cassette on your Campagnolo hub. All Campagnolo hubs that take a 10 speed cassette will also take a 9 speed cassette without adding spacers etc. Contrary to what a few other people who frequent this forum might say,the Campy 9 and Shimano 9 spacing is close enough that you can get good shifting with a Campy 9 speed cassette and Shimano drivetrain ( Shifter and rear derailleur) There are not different 9 and 10 freehubs bodies from Campagnolo, if it took a 9 it can take a 10, and vice versa.

The Shimano splined freehubs that Campy makes for their wheels like the Proton,Eurus will fit on their regular hubs ie., Record,Chorus and Centaur. Like the first reply mentioned, Branford Bike probably has them.
Thanks...I'll contact Branford (nm)bikenj

American Classic and Wheels Manufacturing both make cassettes that work with Campy 10 and 9spd drivetrains and fit the Shimano freehub body.
