Using 9-Speed Cassette Wheels on a 10-Speed Cassette Road Bike
Please forgive me if this question has been asked - I didn't see anything using search function......
I'd like to use my flat-bar bike wheels between a new road-bike.
I have an '03 Trek 7700FX w/Deore XT components and a 9 speed rear cassette.
My bike came with Bontrager Select 700cm Paired spoke wheels. Being a bigger guy, I picked up a set of Mavic Open Pro wheels (700x?) that I interchange with my Bontrager's.
I have put 700x23 through 700x35 size tires on both wheel-sets over the years without any problems.
Now, I am looking at a new road or CX bike which both have a 10 speed rear cassette.
Before I lay out $$$, I want to make sure I don't have to spring for a second set of wheels.
I am assuming I can simply remove the 9 speed cassette from the Open Pros' and slide on the 10 speed cassette and put the wheels on the new road bike? or do the wheels vary due to the cassette width?
Thanks in advance
