Shimano to Campy hub?

I tried searching this topic (as I'm sure it's been done a million times), but got nowhere -- so my apologies if this thread pops up 10 times a week.

My question is pretty basic: I've ordered a Ksyrium ES wheelset (new Helium model, 2007 I think) and it's coming with the Shimano hub. Since then I've thought of doing a Campy build instead of Shimano. Would it be possible to convert these Ksyriums over to Campy? If so, how much would it cost me? Where would I order the part I need?

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure Mavic makes a Campy compatible freehub body for all of their wheels and you could change the Shimao body out for it. I don't know the cost but I'm sure it isn't cheap. Contact Mavic for prices and availability.

One other way to attack this problem is to use the wheel as already ordered and a Shimano cassette. Then get a Jtek Shiftmate to allow the Campy shifters and rear derailleur to index properly with the Shimano cogs. That's got to be much cheaper than the conversion freehub body and Shimano replacement cassettes are cheaper and more available for your future needs.

BTW, I've read that 10-speed Campy shifters and rear derailleurs index adequately with 10-speed Shimano cassettes with no adapters but I expect the shifting isn't spot-on. The Shiftmate will assure it is.

You can find the freehub bodies on ebay. Most go for $30-50, they're $100 from Mavic.

Thanks for the replies. I just need to know it can be done, either by a new freehub or by the shiftmate. M inclination is to go with the former, since I'm a purist, but, it's great to know my options. Thanks!

Just ask the dealer if you can change your order. If not, sell the Shimano freehub body to help pay for the new Campy version.

It certainly looks like it should be.
