    White Industries H3 hub Shimano to Campagnolo conversion.

    I am transitioning from SRAM to Campagnolo groups and need some help regarding my current WI H3 hubs. The H3 on my wheel has a Shimano freehub. Can I simply replace the Shimano freehub with a Campy freehub? Or do I need to purchase a Campy specific H3 hub to begin with? I am hoping to save a little cash by simply doing a free hub swap rather than have to buy a new hub and have another Wheel laced up. Thank you for your input.

    Here's a cut/past from the FAQ on their website:

    "Can I convert my rear cassette hub from Campy to Shimano or Shimano to Campy?

    For cassette hubs manufactured after 1996, you can convert from one drive train system to another. A new freehub body, axle, and axle ends are required for the conversion. Once the new components are installed, the wheel will need to be re-dished. While the hubs can be converted from one drive system to another, the Campy 11 system is only compatible with the H3 hub shell."

    and don't forget those white hubs use a ti body...I've done this exact conversion before and it's $150+ in parts!

    Thanks Dookie and Jay. I think I will buy another Campy specific H3 and sell my Shimano H3. In this case probably a more convenient solution for me!

    Why would you have to redish the wheel? Is that somthing particular to those hubs. I've heard of people changing freehub bodies but not of redishing too.

    The new axle/end cap combo shifts the wheel over a bit
