2012 campy zonda wheelset on vintage pinarello asolo

I bought this 90s Pinarello asolo last week.
http://www.bikeforums.net/attachment...4&d=1343762149
I also found a set of BNIB 2012 campy zondas for $450. My dropouts and the hub are 130mm rear and 100mm front, so spacing should be fine. Would the diameter be off? What kind of problems can I run into? I'm planning on throwing on a single cog and some spacers to make it a single speed as my budget isn't big enough to throw on quality components.

Thanks in advanced

Seems like a waste of money to spend all that $$ for a single speed honestly. You could use a $100 set of wheels for that.

It sounds silly for a single speed, but it will work. Your biggest issue will be getting loose cogs for campy splines. They are out there, but they will cost more than traditional ss cogs. They will also be thinner ad ramped for shfting. My advice is save up for a campy group. They can be had fairly cheap.

On the plus side it will look decent. I have older eurus wheels on my even older tommasini. I think it works nicely.

I agree. However a lot of single speed/fixed wheelsets seem to be really heavy with average hubs. I would want a light wheelset with quality hubs and bearings that would fly.

Is the ss setup a stop gap till you can afford a group or is it the intended setup? If you want to stay ss then get a set of proper ss wheels. Formula ss hubs are very nice. Velomine often has them laced to mavic rims for a pretty decent price.
