|Dura-Ace 10sp cassette on a 9sp hub?||ds5200|

|Will this work? I did a search and can't find the answer. I'm looking to pick up a used set of wheels for the trainer and can find some D/A 9sp o/p pretty cheap. Currently running the new 10sp.

|it should work - shimano said that it's 9 spd hubs would accept 10 spd cassettes, but the new 10spd hubs wouldn't be backward compatable with 9 spd cassettes.
having said that, I haven't personally tried it yet.

|It's listed under the FAQ on the Shimano website. The cassette should come with a spacer that allows it to be used on 9-speed hub. The 10 speed cassette is actually narrower than a 9-speed.|

|I haven't checked out the Shimano site like C-40 but I just sold off a 10 speed DA kit. When I took the cassette off I noticed 2 spacers and not one as Shimano mentions.One spacer was thicker and the other very thin so I think the cassette must not have tightened down enough using just the provided Shimano spacer. Since the kit I sold was OEM from a complete bike I wasn't around when it was installed.
My cassette came of some Mavic Ksyrium Elites if this helps any. Also the spacers go on first, then the cassette....

|When used with a Mavic M10 cassette body, two spacers are used; one Mavic spacer to reduce the longer M10 cassette body to a normal shimano length and a shimano spacer to reduce the length for the 10 speed cassette.|| |
