Just bought a second hand turbo which came with a spare wheel, only problem is that it is a Shimano freehub and my bikes are Campag. As I'm not too worried about shift quality will this work OK? I'll be using 9 speed with a Sram chain

  • 9 speed is perfectly compatible... I use it on the road too... just start the gear indexing from the middle (5th) sprocket, aligninig the jockey wheels with the sprocket and all will be smooth

    Perfect, thank you. The shimano wheel currently has a 10 speed cassette, going to see if I can convert it to 9 speed using spacers from a 9 speed campag. If not I'll just get a shimano one.

    not sure if your campag/shimano mix will work without any equipment change : here is one useful page

  • It will work... I am running 9 speed Shimano cassette with 9 speed Campagnolo drivetrain/Ergos on my bike... no problem at all
