Hi,
Looking for a bit of advice, my fulcrum racing 3 wheels are probably approaching the limit of rim wear (although I'm struggling to find any information on how much wear is acceptable).

I have been offered an almost new pair of fulcrum racing 3 with a campag freehub (both old and new are 11 speed).
Can I just switch over the freehub bodies from my old wheels to the new ones to convert them to shimano?

Thanks,
Mark

    Yep almost certainly can. If not just use campg cassettes as 11sp is totally cross compatable.
  • Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels have been using the same freehub for quite a long time, so yes, a simple swap.

    yes, assuming you are swapping freehubs rather than simply using a camper 11 cassette, there are 2 different 15mm axle shimano 11 speed free hub bodies, the steel one weighs an absolute ton so try and get the newer/much lighter white/plasma coated one, about £70 I think.
