    Fulcrum R7 Freehub Body

    I have a Fulcrum R7 wheelset (Shimano). Is it possible to change freehub body to use it with Campagnolo cassette? Is it difficult?

    Fulcrum prolly has a Campy-splined cassette body as a part...

    Otherwise, if you have a spiderless cassette, you may be able to find spacers to make it work with a Campag system.

    Or you could use a Shiftmate.

    Kimmo,
    I'm already using Centaur 10sp shifters + Shimano Ultegra RD and cassette 9sp + hubbub . It works fine. But in future I'm planning to go with Campy 10sp. I just don't want to change rear wheel.

    Maybe if your hub looks like this, you can fit one of those RS-005 parts.

    Or maybe you need the spindle as well... or maybe your hub's different altogether and you need an older part?

    Kailex will be cheaper for you to get a conversion cassette, the darn hub body is almost the same price than a conversion cassette from american classics for example.

    I almost got a set of wheels fulcrum 5 last week and i was thinking on doing the same u mention and sort do not worth because of the cost. Besides looks like almost nobody have the fulcrum body available also.

    Im running a easton vista shimano with a campagnolo conversion cassette right now and works fine.

    Good luck.

    So I can use for example 10sp Ultegra cassette on Shimano wheel with spacers from conversion kit, Ultegra RD and Centaur 10sp shifters, can't I?

    I believe the answer is no. But, from what i heard/read u can use a shimano cassette with campy brifters and a sram rival RD, and that combination i read works fine, anybody knows something about this?

    To tell you the truth i have use a combination like the one u mention but with no respacing and the only issue is that u'll lose a few cogs, for example 1 or 2 of the small ones and at the top also. from the 10 cogs u end up with 7 or 8 working fine just in case.
