Campag Freehub Body on Shimano 105 Hub?
I'm getting some new wheels built for my commuter. I'm currently considering Shimano 105 hubs / Velocity Dyad rims (maybe Deep-V, still undecided).
If I decide to use my new wheels on a Campy-equipped bike which I may purchase down the line, will it be possible to change the Shimano freewheel body so I can attach a Campy cassette to the 105 hub? Who manufactures such a device?
I mean part no 15 in this exploded view.
If not, I guess my options are -
1. Get the wheels with a Velocity (i.e. Formula) hub. Velocity tells me their "good" hub is the Formula RB-35 hub, as on www.formulahubs.com
. Anyone have experience with this particular Forumla hub?
2. Get the wheel re-built when / if I do get a Campy-equipped bike.
3. Use a conversion cassette or a Shimano cassette with one of those Shiftmate widgets, assuming they're available in Oz.
My final question is - will I incur the wrath of the bike part Gods by mixing Campy and Shimano parts like this?
I've tried searching for this but have been unsuccessful.
