Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo?

As for Shimano/SRAM, I'm pretty sure the plastic spacer must stay on with 8-10-speed cassettes: I have two road bikes with Aksiums - one set is Aksium Race wheels which came with the bike, I believe them to be the 2011 model. The other were store-bought and the 2012 model.

The leaflet that came with the 2012 wheels instructed to leave the plastic spacer on for 8-10 speed cassettes. The other bike came built with the same spacer on.

If the plan is to upgrade to an 11-speed Shimano/SRAM drive-train, I think Mavic sells a replacement body specifically for this purpose.

OTOH Campagnolo of course has been selling 11-speed drive-trains for quite a while, as pointed out.
