How would I go about changing an 8 speed Campy wheel to 10? Is there any way to do it without buying a new hub?

Thanks,

Paul
No, there is no way, 10 speed needs a 9/10 compatible hub nmclimbo

It depends on which wheel or hub you have. Certain built up Campy wheels, as well as standard Record or Chorus hubs, can have just the freehub body replaced with a 9/10 speed freehub body. Chorus and Record hub bodies have both been available in the past. There was a lot of switching going on when Campy first came out with their 9 speed hubs. Contact www.branfordbike.com for details - they know everything there is to know about cross-compatibility of Campy parts.

I just did this myself. I bought a 9/10 speed freehub
from Branford Bike and switched it with the 8 speed
one. Give Tim a call at Branford tell him what you
are doing and he will make sure you get the right parts.
