Can someone please tell me if a Shimano freewheeel is compatible with a Sram cassette?


  • Shimano and SRAM have the same spacing if that's what you mean?

    A SRAM cassette has the same spline pattern as Shimano and therefore will fit on a Shimano freehub. FWIW a freewheel is something completely different.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Many thanks to both for the speedy responses. Quite clearly I have got muddled and did indeed intend to refer to a freehub as you rightly point out. However, the information supplied is just what I needed.
