I've got an older Fulcrum 5 wheelset with a Campy freehub installed. The wheelset is perfect, and I'd like to use it for a Shimano bike.
As per the tech docs on the Fulcrum website, the shimano freehub body for the 2005-2008 fulcrum 5's is a part number R5-015.
The shimano version freehub changed for the 2009-present to an R5-020 freehub, which is the same as a Campy part #WH-KX9.
This newer freehub body is available and priced very nicely at probikekit, and I'd love to pick one up to install...I'm just looking for some confirmation that it's going to be backwards compatible with the earlier model ('05-'08) Fulcrum 5's.
I'd appreciate any information you guys have on this particular issue. I understand that it might be a long shot, but amazing things have happened around here, so I thought I'd give it a try. Thanks.
I actually ended up receiving some email feedback from the fulcrum wheels tech support folks, and they confirmed that the R5-020 freehub body IS compatible with the older Fulcrum 5 wheelsets. Great news for me, and it looks we'll be able to put this set into use afterall.
