I currently have an ultegra set up on my bike with three sets of wheels shared between my wife and I, two pairs of Ksyriums, and a pair of cosmos. getting a new ride in a month or two, wanting to go with record. I seem to remember seeing some type of adapter to switch the hub from shimano to campy, is this possible? thanks in advance.

You will have to fit a Mavic M10 freehub body to your wheels to take the slightly wider 10 speed cassette - you will also need the Mavic cassette as I believe that the splines are different from the Campy version. Unfortunately a campy 9/10 speed cassette, regardless of splines etc are too long to fit on a shimano freehub body.

thanks for your replay CT1, probably not worth the trouble I guess. I will look into it, but maybe I should just stick with Dura Ace. Thanks again

Don't give up. It may still work.DY

There is another option to check out. There is a company that makes cassettes/cogs and they say that with theirs, one can switch back and forth between Campy and Shimano.

Check it out. They are called Marchisio Sprockets. Avaiable from Torelli and others. I looks like you can't put a 10 Campy on the Shimano, but you can put on a 9 or 8.
