Hi Chaps,

Is it poss to run a sram 1090 10sp casette with the campag veloce goup?

Only wheels I've got for the moment until I get some from Harry.

Cheers

    DO you mean running a wheel with a Sram/Shimano freehub on it (and a Sram cassette) with your otherwise Veloce groupset?

    Or fitting a Sram cassette to a wheel with a Campag freehub?

    Hey Pokerface,

    I mean the former.

    Wheel with SRAM cassette using Campag Veloce.

    :)

    An SRAM cassette will not fit a Campagnolo freehub.

    AFAIK - this will work. I'm sure I've done the opposite myself int he past (wheel with Campag gears with my Sram set-up).

    Unless there's some weird spacing or chain width issue?


    Anyone?

    Works but is an unhappy marriage.

    Spacings are a little different but if you can put up with the occasional duff shift and rattles on a gear or 2 it's do-able

    The sprocket spacing on Shimano and SRAM is the same but Campag is slightly different. The difference is pretty small though, and in practice what you're proposing may work well enough for you.

    hmmm sounds a bit dodgy.

    Will just have to wait for new wheels.

    Thanks all.

    Depends on how smooth and quiet you like you drivetrain. There are a couple of cable pull dodges on Highpath Engineering website.that are worth trying
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    ...just mentioned Highpath in the buying section, apparently Shimano are reintroducing Biopace. As with this thread I think Chris Bell has some valuable things to say...he's worth listening to.
