That looks for all the world like a Campag body to me.

The spacing of the splines is spot on,fits all the way around on my Shimano cassette but then next step on the hub body is too high

Have spoken to my road guru here, that is a 10 speed specific Shimano body. It will not take a 9 speed cassette.

hope you are ready for anguish as a Roval wheel owner...you will find it to be a struggle. Some companies should stick to what they do best instead of trying to be everything to everybody.
