converting older Mavic Ksyrium ('02?) freehub body from Shimano to Campag?
Anyone know how?

I know freehub bodies can be bought ie

The bike shop doing the conversion has been unable to find a freehub cassette body that fits this older Mavic Ksyrium wheel. I've already got the Chorus cassette to put on but now it's looking like I may have to get a Mavic cassette that slots onto a Shimano freehub body and is spaced for Capagnolo.

I'd be grateful if anyone can point be in the right direction, or give suggestions.

If you can't find anything. Spend the 40 bucks for a shiftmate so you can use shimano cassettes with an otherwise campy drivetrain. No biggie.

I'm running a shimano cassette/chain on an otherwise campy drivetrain without one and it works fine, the shiftmate would make it a 'fix' instead of a 'mess with it till it works' solution.

Thanks for your response ridethecliche.

I've decided to go with the Mavic cassette even though it's not the cheapest solution. I'll be keeping my eye out in the future for a nice second hand rear wheel that can accept my Chorus cassette.

Here's a great PDF document I came across that discusses mix & matching drivetrain parts. I agree that the Jtek shiftmate seems to be one of the more elegant solutions.
