|Campy compatible with Shimano?||wily in pacifica|

|I am looking into getting a used bike that is equiped with Campy componants, however, it needs a new wheelset. It has a campy 8 speed rear cluster. I have a set of Shimano wheels at home and was wondering if I put a shimano 8 speed cluster on the shimano wheels will the campy shifters and rear der work smoothly?

|From reading this board it looks like many people have success running Shimano 8 speed wheels on the Campy 8 Group. The spacing is a little different but not a lot different. Shifts may no be clean at either end.
I have not tried it myself. Branford sells a spacer kit that puts the Shimano spacing right on spot for the Campy 8 system.

|It'll almost surely work. Flawlessly and perfectly? Probably not.
I've got a beater wheel with a 9 speed Shimmy cassette, I've used it on several all Campy rigs on the trainer. No problems.
|Second that it works with 9sp. nm||dzrider|
