Is it possible to use a 10sp shimano casette with a 10sp campag groupset.

 

I'm looking for wheels and can get shimano wheels.

You can mix and match any of the 10speed brands, the spacings are all the same. You can use a shimano chain on a campag cassette and visa versa. the only thing that does not work is a shimano cassette on a campag cassette body and visa versa. the rest all work together.

The spacing is not 100% the same. But you can use it like that. It wont shift like it should, but it never bothered me.

I already do it on my mtb.

SRAM all the way with xt casette.

 

The shimano casette is only for training as the roads in centurion are killing my nice campag wheels.

Don't mind wasting some shimano wheels :)
