Amer Classic "Campy" Cassette Fit Problem on Shimano Hub
Here's my problem. I have a Cannondale with a Chorus drivetrain and Mavic Ksyerium that works just fine. I also have a Shaimano 600 wheel and a Velomax Orion "shimano" wheel, that I assumed I could use with my Campy bike if I got an American Classic conversion Cassette. They all work - "theoretically" - except that the cassette is just a bit too close to the spokes, so that in the 23t, the derailleur just "ticks" some of the spokes. If I could add a very thin spacer, it would move the cassette out, but the 12t is just barely engaging the splines on the hub, so I don't think I can.
The cassette body needs to be a tiny bit longer. I'm pretty sure these are 10 speed hubs. Is there a measurement I can check to see if I have the correct hubs ??
Is there a way to get my wheels to work ?? I was hoping to make use of them since I already have them. Are there just certain Shimano compatible hubs that work with American Classic conversion cassettes and Campy ?
Should I just sell the wheels and look for Campy wheels instead ?
