Hey guys, does anyone know if a Campy rear hub and cassette will work as far as indexing with 105, 10 X 2 speed shifters and double ultegra crankset. Not sure of specifics of chain and cassette.

Thanks

info...

Campy cogs spacing is wider, at 4.15mm, compared to Shimano's 3.95mm. The accumulative error adds up to about 40% after 9 shifts.

Although some people mix the two, it works better the other way around, where a Campy drivetrain overshifts with a Shimano cassette.

You can use a J-tek shiftmate to correct the RD travel, but that's one more thing to buy.

To paraphrase C-40's response - NO!

It will never function satisfactorily.

I use the American Classic conversion cassette; reasonably priced and work fine.

/ oops never mind, you're going the other direction. disregard. try the jtek.

In my experience 10 speed cassettes work fairly well with all three major shifters.

I have had to ride a loaner bike the past couple of weeks. The loaner is equipped with Sram force and my regular bike is Campy record 10. I have used both my regular campy 10 training wheel and race wheel and they both shift and work fine. My g-friend has ultegra 10 speed and I let her use my campy 10 race wheel in a crit this past weekend and it worked fine for her as well.

So well in fact she won the field sprint and came home with $444 big ones.

You can replace the Campy freehub with a Shimano/SRAM compatible freehub for about $100 and then use a Shimano/SRAM cassette.
