Hi,

I would be very grateful I any of you campy officiando's could help me.

I have just bought a set of Ambrosio Excellence TQB 36H Rims with Campy Hubs and have no idea which model they are or even what speed the freehub will be either.

I only bought this morning so cant give any measures or additional pics at this stage.

I am guessing as no oil port and not a freewheel but a cassette that these are probably 8 speed?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

David

These are low end 8sp Mirage or Veloce I'm afraid. Record and Chorus have the central ridge with the removable grease port clip and Athena have the engraved band.

Ok guy's thanks for responses!

The wheels cost me £60 delivered all in so not too concerned that they are not top end hubs.

I would be grateful of any help on this, can send more pics when they actually arrive.

Reason I would like to know is that I want other components to match ideally as restoring a 1983 Scapin Sprint - I know these wheels are later than 83 but will see what this brings in terms of date and model first before deciding to use them.

Lastly, is there any issue using a 8spd if this is what these are assuming a 130mm sizing on a frame that was made for 7 spd at 126mm?

Thanks

A good start would be to look through Campagnolo catalogue scans from this site to get a better ID on possible other parts in this groupset. I found the Veloce groupset in the 1993 to be the earliest record of the non-central banded 8sp rear hub, you can download the pdf of the catalogue here - http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/v/M ... atalogues/

Thanks everyone for your replies.

I am going to sell the wheels on as dont feel comfortable with the fact they are 8 speed and 10 years newer than the frame they were going on.

I have managed to purchase a full NOS Campy Victory group which is more in keeping with a 1983 frame anyway.

Cheers

We've not seen the frame but it would be my guess that it would look great with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset. These parts are available relatively cheaply on eBay and don't half look good on the right bike. Here's a recent example - http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=236418
