It should work The only adjustment that you may have to make is that you may have to center your changer on the 4th or 5th cog instead of the 2nd cog.
The only downside is that you'll have to make that minor adjustment every time you change from a Shimano wheel to the Campy one.

do you really think it is worth the work every time though?

the price is 650 dollars with tires and just 50 miles on them(what they say.).look on the classifieds at the first bontrager carbons you see in the wheel section.i just try to race the bike and do what service i can do.

That was a very good price. Almost too good........ Makes you wonder.
I've never been into those high zoot wheels. When Mavic stopped making their GL330 rim, I bought up all that I could find at a dirt cheap price. Nobody wanted them anymore, they all wanted the "new and improved" rims that just happened to weigh 60g more than the old out-of-date rims. I've even got some good Wolber tubular rims that the 7-11 team used to race on. I think that I've got enough rims to last until I'm taking that big dirt nap.

I've got quite the stash of GL330s and some Campy Strada tubular rims for my track bike. Bought for cheap before people figured out what they were worth again...

Hah!
