Hi all,
I am sure this is a stupid question and I have researched the net without finding a definitive answer.
I have some new Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels which i am using an 11 speed 6800 cassette, all perfect. I have 10 speed on my other bike and wanted to use the wheels on the older bike, i appreciate i will need the spacer rings but how many?

Both of the cassettes are shimano, the 10 speed i have both 6700 and 105 10 speed cassette, I 'do' have the 1mm spacer with those. I didnt appear to get a spacer with the Cosmic wheels but i have a 1.85mm in the tool kit.
To use the 10 speed cassettes on these Mavic wheels do i need both spacers or one or other?

Thanks in advance.

    to use those 10-speed cassettes on the 11-speed hub, you can use the 1.85mm + 1mm spacers

    To use a 10 speed on a Mavic freehub body, just put one old ten speed cog spacer behind the cassette and leave off the normal 10 speed 1mm spacer.

    So just the 1.85mm spacer?

    You need to use both - the Mavic 10/11 speed shim that comes with the wheels, and the spacer that comes with the 10 speed cassette.

    It's the sort of thing most LBS with have knocking around, you keep them sometimes when you dispose of a worn 10 speed cassette.

    Any combination of spacers that totals +/- 2.85mm. You can use the spacers that normally fit in between cassette sprockets - an 8 speed one at 3.00 mm is near enough, a 9 speed one at 2.56 also works without affecting the shifting in my experience. A 10 speed one is only 2.35.......
    FFS! Harden up and grow a pair :D
