Sram hub conversion

Good day,

I have a set of Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels with Sram/Shimano rear hub. Can the rear wheel be fitted with a Campy unit to run a Campy drivetrain? Meaning, just swap out the cassette mounting parts, not the entire hub.

Thanks,

Mike

First stop would be to check with Mavic to see if they even offer freehubs to the public.

FWIW it's been my experience that it's just cheaper to sell your wheels and buy a Campy version. By time you get done with parts and labor you could figure $150-200 minimum which puts you 1/2 way to a used set of the same wheels off Craigslist or Ebay.
