Rolf/Campy question(5 posts)

Want to convert my Rolf vector comps from Shimano freehub to Campy type freehub. Anyone know if I can do this? Will probably be buying the Campy Chorus (04) group and can't really afford new wheels too.

Any help appreciated, Thanks

I'm not sure about the hub on the comps, but the hub on a vector pro is the same as a DT Hugi 240, and all you need to do to switch that one is pull off the cassette carrier and replace it with the other type. I assume the same applies to a vector comp. Your LBS can probably order the part for you.

Dave, I was in the same boat earlier this year. www.bikeman.com sells a DT Swiss/Hugi Campy cassette body which MIGHT fit on the Rolf's (you should call to confirm). Another option is to find someone with the opposite situation that's willing to swap with you. Lastly, check your Trek-authorized LBS, they might have one collecting dust in back.
Hope this helps.
p.s. I ended up selling mine

Dave,
I saw you asked the same question in the components forum. I'll give you the same answer others have - you should be able to replace the freewheel - the Hugi's run around $75-$100. Or do as I have and use an American Classic or Wheels Manufacturing conversion cassette - from my personal experience - they work great and are the best solution from a cost standpoint.

Hey, (it's Luis) I've seen you riding the Mummy Mtn. loop on occasion. Still on the Colnago? I upgraded the Ti Bianchi to a Carbon Fondriest.
What is your riding schedule like now?
