8 speed to 10 speed wheel?
I checked around and saw a few threads on this, but wanted to be sure about it.
I have an older wheel I was hoping to modernize and have as a backup. It currently has an 8-speed Shimano HG cassette with a Shimano 600 hub.
I was hoping to put a 10-speed Sram cassette on there. Spacing does look to be 126mm.
Is this possible? Some say you need a spacer, some seem to say it won't work, some say I'll need to redish the wheel. I'd be using it with modern Sram Force shifters.
Not in a huge need for a wheel, but wouldn't hurt to have a backup. But, if it's more trouble than it's worth or will result in bad shifting, rattling, etc...might not try it.
Thanks for the help!
