    Shimano/Campy Drivetrain Compatibility

    Hey everyone,

    I am looking into getting some Edge Carbon 50's and am wondering whether to get them in Shimano or Campagnolo. My current race bike is a Scott CR-1 Pro with Shimano Ultegra, however I am looking into expanding my bike stable with a Colango CX-1 - and of course it will run Campy 10. My question is: is it possible to run a Shimano 10 cassette on Campy 10 drivetrain or is there a Campy compatable cassette that I can buy that will fit on a Shimano-splined hub?

    Thanks in advance!

    Probably not or these folks would be doing it:

    If anyone does it, these folks would do so.
    But they do a 10 speed Campy on a 9 speed Shimano/SRAM wheel-is that close enough?

    Does that conversion cassette work on a 10 speed Shimano wheel or only 9?

    If you buy expensive wheels to use with Campy 10, it's a no-brainer to get the Campy compatible cassette body on the rear hub. Shimano's cog spacing is a narrower 3.95mm, compared to Campy's 4.15mm.

    If you're building the bike from scratch, Campy 11 speed is the way to go. It costs very little extra, but you do need to be sure that the rear hub is 11 speed compatible. Campy made no changes to their spline pattern, but the largest cog is about 1mm further to the left. That has caused some interference with a few hubs and prebuilt wheels.

    Jtek makes a pulley conversion that works great for me. I have a tandem and with the Velomax wheels there is only a Shimano hub. I use a Dura Ace and a Sram cassette without any issues. I have not read any issues with there system and it allows any Shimano spaced cassette to work with Campy 10 drivetrain.

    You can get IRD cassettes for campy 10 speed with the shimano hub patterns. I would go that route, since you have more rim options.

    IRD cassettes are not known for the greatest shifting quality. If you go Campy, get the real experience of matched Campy components, not a second-rate substitute.
