Converting Campag wheels to Shimano freehub

I'm watching a nice set of Neutron Ultras on the 'bay but they have a Campag freehub. Is it possible to change the freehub body to Shimano on a 2010 model?

    Dunno about changing the freehub, but you can get campag fitting but shimano spaced cassettes. Also, Highpath Engineering do a set of spacers to convert a campag cassette to shimano spacing.
  • Probably, but I'm guessing the freehub body will cost an arm and a leg. Assuming you're currently running a Shimano 10-speed drivetrain, you could just pick up a cheap Campagnolo 10-speed cassette. This works despite the slight mismatch in spacing thanks to Shimano's floating jockey wheel. Then there's always Jtek Shiftmate.

    As above... Shiftmate or Shimano spaced casettes... Neutron are nice wheels, but the availability of spares and the hassle to rebuild them make them a bad investment, if bought second hand

    I wrote a small article about rebuilding a Neutron ... ding-wheel

    Thanks guys,

    @Cycloslalomeur I'm wondering if the freehub I've got on my current Fulcrum 3 (also 2010) is compatible with the Neutron's hub?

    @Ugo I just emailed you, might decide to go with a set of handbuits and keep the F3's as a spare set for the winter
