Shimano compatible rear wheel with Campy Record 9-speed?...(6 posts)

Shimano compatible rear wheel with Campy Record 9-speed?...SS_MB-7

I'm looking at the Power Tap Pro hub/wheel which is only Shimano compatible. I'm currently running full Campy Record 9-spd on my bike. Most of the Power Tab on-line retailers state that a 3rd party kit is required...I'm assuming they are referring to the Wheels Manufacturing Accelerator Ultegra/D-A cogset. Is this my only option? If so, best on-line source?

Save yourself the money. I've run a D/A 9s cassette on Campy 9sp with no problems.
You 10s guys can save $ too!MShaw

My Tri friend had me switch a bunch of components around on his 4 bikes. We ended up with Record 10 one one bike, but no rear wheel 'cause I hadn't had a chance to re-build it yet. I figured what the heck, lets see if I can't get this puppy to shift.

With a little adjusting on the limit screws and a little tinkering with the barrel adjusters... Guess what? Slicker'n snot!

He went out and rode the Tuesday "climbing ride" in Sorrento Valley with nary a skip or missed shift.

out of 2 Shimano cassettes. You'd need 9sp 105 and low end 8sp to borrow 3-4 spacers. Take 105 apart and replace every second spacer.


PS here's info on cass spacing from Sheldon Guru Brown

Sheldon also stated: "In particular, for reasons that are not quite clear, 9-speed hubs/cassettes seem to work pretty well with the opposite 9-speed derailer/shifter brand." which is in agreement with what "bikeridah" replied with.

it'll be harder to adjustcyclopathic

it works b/c if you adjust dead on center, you come off 0.84mm on first/last cog, and it is less then float is. However, if adjustment is off it won't shift as crisp, and it will be harder to adjust.

You can get indivigual 8sp spacers for ~2$, check online or QBP catalog in LBS good luck
