    Respacing Miche cassette for Shimano

    I have 9 speed Campag on my Roberts, but the cassette is a Miche. I just bought some Nitto Moustache bars and I have a pair of DA 9 speed barcons to go with them. I also have a 9 speed Tiagra cassette, which obviously won't fit on my Veloce hub. Can I drill out the rivets on that cassette, take the spacers and put them in the Miche cassette? I want to know if it's do-able before I buy the cassette lockring tool (BTW, would I need a regular Campag fit or a special Miche one?)

    you don't have to drill the 'rivets'.Pretty sure they are bolts that take a small allen wrench.shimano 9 speed spacers are 2.56mm, and campy are 2.8.Duno what Miche is using for cog and spacer thickness,but it would matter.

    You are correct. I examined the Shimano cassette I have sitting nearby and it is held together with three Allen screws, 1.5 mm. A much more elegant design than riviets.

    Huh, pretty sure they're not screws, but my memory ain't what it, er... ah I forget. Anyway, I'll check Sheldon for cog thickness but I don't think he knows.
