Would it be a component selection faux pas...(12 posts)

Would it be a component selection faux pas...collinsc

I am finding myself prefering campy neutrons over ksyriums if only because I am starting to feel the ksyriums are excessively gaudy and I can hardly stand to look at them anymore.

Is it tres gauche to put campy wheels on a bike equipped with dura ace?
Do that, and you'll be excommunicated from Shimano church... nmtz

Go for it. The nucleons, by repuatation, are great wheels. Someone will invariably say something. If they do, just rip their legs off on the next hill. Enjoy. Paul
That would result in bad karma. You'll be reborn as a Huffy. nmtz

The Nucleons in my stable are my favorite pair of wheels. I don't have a set of Lews or Zipps. I believe the Nucs are lighter than any Kyserium other than this years SSC SL which are about the same weight.

I think you'll have to do something to make the rear hub usable with Shimano 9. I'm no wrench and can't help with the conversion.
I think you should write to Miss Manners to inquire.djg

Ks: good wheels; you don't like the stickers, they come off pretty easy.

Neutrons: good wheels; you like the stickers, they stay on pretty easy.

Get what you want.
That's why Campy make a Shimano compatible cassette....CT1 Guy

so that riders fed up with their heavy Shimano wheels can ditch them for some decent, well built ones.
