done a quick search but didn't find anything.

Can you convert a Campag rear wheel (Euros, Neutron etc.) to run a Shimano/SRAM cassette?

Ideally, swap the freehub, rather than use specialist sprockets.

    okay I've found this

    so it does look possible to fit a Shimano compatible freehub onto a Campag hub. The only problem is that it's 10spd Shimano only, which would be an issue for 10spd SRAM cassettes I think.

    And £46 isn't exact cheap...

    Miche offers sprocekts for Shimano and Campagnolo and you can exchange spacers.

    but this is secondary solution as you stated

    I've used 10speed campag wheel/cassettes on a shimano setup without any problems. I just align the chain on one of the middle sprockets and use the end stops to keep the outer 2 sprockets correctly aligned. By my calculations the alignment only drifts out by just over half a millimetre at most which from my experience hasn't caused any issues, nice shifting right through the cassette.
    Yes it is a little more hassle to setup than using the correct cassette but it does work.
