    Campagnolo 10 Speed with Shimano Spline

    I run Campy 10 speed, but want to buy a KICKR Core smart trainer. The current models do not have a Campy adaptor. Wahoo referred me to RSI cycles in the UK, but they no longer carry the Ambrosio cassette that would work. Does anyone have a suggestion on finding a Campy 10 speed cassette with a Shimano spline?

    Thanks

    Wheels Manufacturing used to make a conversion cassette but no longer do. Might be able to find one on ebay. Another option would be to take a Shimano cassette and alter the spacers to get the right width.

    Is this not a question for the Components and Wrenching sub forum?

    you can run a 10-speed shimano cassette on a 10-speed campagnolo drivetrain.

    what you will need is a small length of derailleur cable.

    you place that length of cable inbetween the binder bolt and the rear derailleur cable, like so:

    works flawlessly

    My friend broke a spoke in a race and was given a shimano 10 speed wheel (hub and cassette) from support and he said it worked okay with his Campy 10 speed.

    I wouldn't invest a lot in planning on the same experience but if you can try that for free it's probably worth a try. Even if the shifting sucks who cares for the trainer as long as you can switch gears.

    Interesting. Is is a Campy or Shimano derailleur?

    I know this wasn't what you arked but I believe TACX smart trainers support Campy. If you are taking your bike on and off the trainer, having to constantly fiddle with derailleur adjustments to make a Shimano cassette halfway work sounds very frustrating

    full campy 10-speed group. well, except for the cassette

    you can also spend about $50 on a jtek shiftmate if you want. but i would suspect it doesn't work any better

    Yes, I know Tacx is an option as they have a Campy adaptor. Just thought the Kickr Core was a great value. Bacically, last yearís Kickr with less noise and no leg adjustment for $899. I might try the Stac Zero Halcyon (Smart Trainer) and see how it feels. 30 day return policy if needed.

    I agree that the Core may be the best smart trainer value out there but to use it you either need to find a conversion cassette or upgrade your drivetrain to 11 speed. I still have one Campy 10sp bike in my stable

    I find it hard to justify spending $800 to upgrade my drivetrain, just so I can put the bike on a $900 trainer. Iím 55 and not a racer. That extra gear has little benefit for me.

    Understood. Maybe your best option is to "downgrade" to the Snap. You save $400 and it works with any drive train. The downside is lower power accuracy, more noise, and more calibration hassles

    hello Speed_Metal, what exactly does the length of cable inside the binding bolt do that makes the campy drivetrain compatible with the shimano cassette?
    I'm facing the same issue.

    It slightly alters the pull ratio, just like a Shiftmate.
