and when he gets a bit hot and sweaty after photographing naked Campag parts, he puts these on:

I believe there used to be titanium exadrive cassettes sold that required a specifically grooved freehub body, hence this version of the exadrive rear hub. I certainly never saw them back in the day. I've just got the standard non-exadrive steel cassette on my old record hub. I've also got a steel record exadrive 8spd cassette which I'm running on a new set of Mavic Aksiums using a special spacers at the back.

" Perfect for 8 speed Campagnolo Record cassette "

Hmm, I'm not entirely sure you can run standard record cassettes, nor any 8spd steel cassette on the hub in this auction. I think the only way to achieve 8spd (in the likely absence of old Ti sprockets) is to run 9spd sprockets with 8 speed spacers, which may not index all that well. So in fact, I'm not sure that the seller is revealing as much as he could !
