I've about worn through my old Mavic MA40's on my '92 Specialized. Wondering if I can just swap cassettes from the old 8 speed to the 9 speed hub on my new(er) bike. Both are Ultegra, one with MA40 and the other with Open Pro. Would then buy a nicer wheelset for the new bike.

8 and 9-speed freehub bodies are the same. Older ones may not take an 11 tooth cog. - TF

Thanks man, that's what I thought, and the 11 tooth really isn't a problem for me (or most others!)
