    Changing to Campagnolo

    So,
    I am ditching my Ultegra in favor of Campy. I want to keep my wheels. They are WI hubs and are well built.

    Should I

    1. Switch the freehub to fit the Campy cassette.

    2. Run a Campy spaced cassette that will fit the freehub I have.

    Opinions?
    Thanks,

    10 or 11 spd? 11 is one better

    If the hubs you have will take Shimano 11 spd, then the spacing is same as Campy - no prob.

    If not. Whats the cost of switching the freehub?

    In any case, for a Campynewb I'd suggest a start with 11.

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    I dont know the costs yet. I am going to go Athena 11. I am hoping its just a freehub swap.

    Athena 11 has turned out to be a favorite of mine. So, good choice.

    H3 hubs are for campy 11. H2 hubs apparently aren't. Wheels Manufacturing makes a 11 speed conversion cassette ($160) for shimaNo hubs with campy spacing. There really isn't a real difference between campy 11 and shimaNo 11 spacing. It works ok. I've got Athena 11 on my red bike, I got mine at Velo Mine for a really decent price.

    I am running an H3 hub. I think I will go with a new freehub. I will call WI monday.
    I too bought mine from VeloMine. They are great to deal with.

    Yeah, I am using Athena 11 as well. Couldn't be happier with it...
