Campy 8 speed hub to 10?(3 posts)

Campy 8 speed hub to 10?ridewt

I know that I could use an American Classic 10 speed cassette, or other brand, to use on a Shimano style 8/9 but is there anything one can do with a Campy 8 speed hub if one wants to try to use a 10 speed cassette? Seems strange that there is a product to rig Shimano 8 to Campy 10 but nothing, as far as I know, to rig Campy 8 to Campy 10?

Check out They have info. on installing a newer 9/10 speed campy cassette body on older 8-speed hubs, but I doubt the cost is worth it with wheels that old.

It would probably be just as smart to get a new rear wheel or a new rear hub and relace the wheel.

Thanks for your reply. There's many good deals on Campy 8 speed wheels but I guess they're of no use to me if not compatible with 10 speed.
