Will a Shimano cassette go on Campy Vento wheels? If not can the freehub be swapped?

Vento wheels come in Shimano and Campy flavours, although Campy ones are far more prevalent

You can change the body- althought from memory these are almost half the cost of the wheelset!!

OPtion 2 would be to fit a Marchisio or similar converter cassette- i might have something kicking around if you need it. But as you know i live on the other side of the world :-)

The one thing i forgot to add

this applies for 10 speed

if you are running 9 speed then just get a campy cassette which will work fine!!

if you are running 7/8 speed then it gets much harder

I have a CAMPAG 9s cassette, so now I just need the downtube shifts.

Aaarghhhh!!

PLEASE don't use 'Campy' - it's an effeminate term that has no place in a true cyclist's vocabulary. It's 'CAMPAG'.

But I'll let you off this time :wink:

Just don't let me catch you doing it again or it'll be a hundred lines!
