I've got a set of circa 2000 blue Rolf Vector comps that I want use on a a Vintage Olmo restoration. These wheels look sweet against its blue ano cranks and stem so I really want to use them. Trouble is these vectors have shimano 10s freehub and campy version is not available. Bike is Italian so drivetrain has to be campy (Mirage 9 spd). Any idea's on how to make this work? Who actually makes these hubs? AM classic and other brand conversion cassettes seem to be a thing of the past. Thanks IMG_0425.jpg

Many moons ago, I had Campy record 10 speed & several sets of wheels, I had a Shimano set that I replaced all the Shimano cassette spacers w/ Campy 9 speed spacers.
It worked great. When setting it up, center the derailleur on the 5th cog (with shifter in 5th) I was told it wouldnt work, worked great, gave me no troubles. The Shimano 9 speed cogs actually worked better than Camps 9 speed cogs .

those Primato cassettes appear to be either campy or shimano, not a conversion cassette . Thanks for the links though.

thank you. Seems like this is the only option that will work. Cheers

Local to me Craigslist has a set of Rolf's for sale with a Campagnolo freehub that's been up quite a while-not sure if older 9 speed used the sample splines.

thanks those look decent. Think I'm gonna try the homemade cassette stack first. Apparently the version I have didn't even have a campy freehub option so not sure I'd be able to swap freehubs with those CL wheels.

got it all worked out. SRAM cogs with campy 9s spacers. Was only able to fit 8 cogs with @ 9s spacing but that's plenty for this retro rig. Shift quality not bad at all. Thanks for the help (except mr cxtool)

Hi, I'm actually face to a Rolf vector comp freehub. My customer complains about buckled cassette. Unfortunately I can't find any documentation on that hub. Do you have any manual or experiences to share? Thank you.
