Hi All

I have just received my pair of Ksyrium ES wheels. I have the Shimano fitting wheels. There is a small spacer on the feehub body, Am I right in thinking that this spacer needs to stay on if i am using my 7800 10spd cassette ?

And it needs to be removed if running a 9spd cassette ?

pretty sure that's the case but would just like confirmation !!

    From what I recall on an older pair of Ksyriums, that spacer should still be on the hub for a 9 speed block, but with a 10 speed cassette, you still need that spacer plus a thin spcaer that comes with the cassette.

    I have a pair of ES and use both washers on the freehub. I run a 10 speed.

    Agreed, you need the washer that comes with the wheels and the washer that comes with the cassette.

    cheers guys !

    I have changed this now, I now have the spacer that came with the wheels and the thinner one that came with my 10spd cassette !

    Cheers !
