I did a race once and flatted, changed out my Shimano wheel, with another wheel that had someone else's Campy cassette on it. Had to adjust the adjusting barrel several times, but eventually got it to work decent to finish the race.
Now, I just want to know if I can get two race wheels dialed in so well, that I won't need to mess with the adjusting barrel on a wheel change. Using the same hub (Ultegra), and same rims (Mavic) even. The only difference in the two wheels is the cassette. For example...
- Ultegra hubs, both wheels
- Shimano Cassette on one wheel
- SRAM cassette on another wheel
Would I have to add any extra spacers or do anything weird to get the distance from the frame to first cog the exact same? How perfect can I get it so that I can just bam, do the wheel change and not even touch the adjusting barrel any at all?
