    8 to 9 speed,9 to 10 speed?

    I have a 8 speed mtn.bike and I'm thinking about getting some nice Chris King wheels built for it.My next mtn.bike will be a 9speed.Can I keep these wheels for the new bike after I put on a 9speed cassette?
    Same question for my 9speed 'cross bike.If I build some King wheels now can I just put on a 10speed cassette and use these on another bike in the future?

    Yes you can. The spline pattern on Shimano and SRAM cassettes is the same for 8, 9 and 10 speeds. The dropout spacing may be your only issue., but they will be very close- probably close enough, especially if you have a steel frame.
