11 speed hubs

While everyone and his/her dog builds 10-speed cassette-capable tandem hubs, any news or rumors thereof for the 11 cog Campy or the soon-to-be-released Shimano 9500? (Just weighing options here.)

Yes, the 9000.

Uh, oh: "An extra sprocket out back means a new chain. It's the same width as Shimano's 10-speed chains but has a slightly shorter pitch (the distance between the chain rivets)."

I believe DA 9000 will be a disaster, but lets not get into that.

We've been 11-speed since 2009 (53-42-30 triple with 12-29 cassette).



The hub for our 135 mm OLD spacing is the DT Swiss 240s Disc Brake. The more robust DT 350 (available in 135, 142 and 150 mm OLD) accommodates Campy 9-10-11 speed, but the DT 540 tandem (135 and 145 mm) does not.



Fulcrum makes off road wheels, and is owned by Campy. I haven't investigated, but it is more likely that their hubs would accept a Campy 11 speed cassette. They list a rider weight limit of 240 lbs, which is close to a lower weight tandem team.


By 11-cog Campy, you refer to the Athena 11-speed triple? Likely to be available in September-October.

I notice the Nokon cable. Have you had any issues with corrosion or the color rubbing off the cable where it flexes?

I don't think so, I'll look tonight.

Bummer with regard to the hubs. The possibility of an Athena RD & cassette paired to a Veloce compact FD might just have made me want to drop the Shimano Flight Deck with a triple 9 or 10.

What disc is that on the disc brake? I've been wanting to do a HOPE disc which is what that looks like but can't determine which HOPE 203mm disc to use.

Doesn't Campy 11 fit on any recent 10speed Campy hub?
