Shimano 9spd cassette on Campy hub?

Without much success in search mode, I find myself asking you guys if a Shimano 9-speed cassette will work on a Campy hub?

Mikey,
What are you trying to accomplish? Do you have a Campy setup and just trying to make use of a Shimano cassette you have hanging around? Or do you have a Shimano setup and have a Campy-hubbed wheel you are trying to use? I am not clear why you would need to use a Shimano cassette on a Campy hub since the price of both brands are about the same. On the other hand I can understand wanting to use a Shimano hub and cassette with Campy shifters and ders to save the cost of a new wheel in a conversion. According to Sheldon Brown, this will actually work just fine, by the way.
Regards,
Raymond

Mikey,
OK, here is a possibility if this is something you just have to do. Campagnolo makes a freehub body that fits their hubs that is splined for Shimano cassettes. Branfordbike.com has them for $70. I guess it would make sense if you wanted to use one of the fancy Campy wheelsets like Nucleon, Electron, etc., but prefer Shimano shifters, etc. Go to
http://www.branfordbike.com/campy/campy.html#Upgrade
and scroll down to
Rear Hubs, Freehub Bodies and Skewers
FWIW,
Raymond

Everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my query. The situation is that I have access to a decently priced set of Nucleons, except they've got the Campy hubs and I run Shimano 9spd.

Again, thanks,
Mike

In that case,you can buy a campy 9 speed cassett and a spacer kit to convert it to shimano 9 speed spacing.Check www.branfordbike.com It's the wheels manufacturing shift 7 kit.Check the catalogue under cassettes.
