Campagnolo 9 speed and 8 speed DILEMMA
Ok so i have a dilemma. I have two wheelsets, both campy. The first pair has an 8 speed campy hub, the other pair has a 9 speed c record hub. I have intentions of building up a frame, originally i wanted an 8 speed early 90's campy chorus setup on this frame. But I recently got ahold of a really nice 9 speed wheelset that's campy and i would definitely rather use this wheelset.
The dilemma is that i wanted to run the chorus group or c-record 8 speed group with brifters mainly because i like how they look with just the campy logos and caligraphy on the derailleur and so on.
I have both campy brifters the 8 speed chorus and the 9 speed record titanium
I do not like the look of all the campagnolo record titanium parts, because it says RECORD and TITANIUM across the cranks and on the derailleur and whatnot. BUT the wheelset i want on this frame is the 9speed wheelset. I just think the campy 9 speed group is too modern for an 80's columbus frame. Personally i don't like the look.
Is there any way of fitting the 8 speed cassette onto the 9 speed c-record hub? I heard you can't do it, but i would like to confirm. If not i guess i'm running campy record titanium 9 speed on it
