    Is Sram red 22 compatible with old 9/10 speed mavic wheels?

    Hi all, I'm building up a new frame w/ sram red 22 speed components and I was wondering if the mavic kyserium elite sl wheels free hub body is compatible or should I go ahead and order some new wheels ASAP. I tried doing a little research online but compatibility was mostly talking about shimano/sram derailleurs, chains and shifters. Any info is appreciated. (I recall hearing that it wasn't compatible but I wanted to double check). Thanks

    After 5 seconds of Internet searching (Google: sram red 22 freehub; answer in very first hit). No.

    "Both will fit on any 11-speed compatible hub/freehub body, so they’ll work on any wheel that fits Shimano’s 11-speed cassettes. They will not fit on 10-speed hubs/freehub".

    ^ perhaps you should have done 10 seconds of internet searching then.....

    Glory Cycles Product Reviews: Converting to Shimano 11 Some Considertations

    Mavic wheels since 2001 are able to lose the spacer and accept the 11 Speed Shimano cassette. No change to 2013 Mavic wheels

    I have a set of mavic kyserium elite wheels and the Sram 11-speed fits without the spacer as indicated. I was also able to have my Reynolds Assault converted with a kit from Reynolds, no dishing need

    FWIW: I have a defunct (cracked rim) Mavic rear from 2000 or 2001 and it has a spacer that goes behind the 9/10 speed cassette. That makes the hub 11 sp compatible?
    ... 'cuz that's how I roll.

    You should really only offer advice when you know what you're talking about. Mavic free hubs have been compatible w/ 11spd Shimano/SRAM cassettes all along. All one has to do is remove the Mavic spacer that has been required w/ Shimano and SRAM 10spd cassettes and install the new 11spd cassette.

    I think the post after mine caught that - without being an arse about it. Although, I know you enjoy piling on. I did forget about the mavic spacer. My bad.

    Don't get too worked up about it, I'm like that to lots of people. I just complimented your advice in another thread.

    And you were quite snippy yourself in post # 2 of this thread.

    sweet! so you're saying I didn't need to buy new wheels then? Doh! thanks a lot Crit Boy! asdfjk;djf;akdj!

    Edit:
    I bought these (carbon 50mm wheel road bike 700c clincher Light-Bicycle) last night before reading all of your replies so it's partially my fault. I am trying to see if they'll cancel the order now but if they won't, I guess I'll just use them for racing only. So it's a win-win!
