Adapt a Shimano 9s Ultegra hub to run on Campy 10s

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Adapt a Shimano 9s Ultegra hub to run on Campy 10s

For the purposes of using a trainer, can I run a Shimano 9s Ultegra rear wheel and casset on a campy 10s drive train? I won't be shifting. I am only concerned about whether the Shimano casset cogs would work with Campy chain.

IMO Campy stuff does work with Shimano stuff. If you aren't shifting , for sure you'll be alright. I use campy rings with my 9spd D.A. drivetrain. Probably the only problem would be if you were using a 9spd chain on a 10 sp cassette.

Is the hub length the same? What about the diameter? That may be your main problem. If the lengths off but the diameter's the same, you can always take the cog you want from the campy cassette and use spacers to hold it in place. However, you may have some play since the ribs on the shimano hub may not exactly fit the campy cogs.

While some might flame me for this, I have (in a pinch) put my shimano 9sp rear wheel onto my campy 10sp bike and it rides and shifts pretty well (I'd say about 90% as well as the campy wheel), and that's using the campy chain.

Go for it!
