Nope. Campi and Shimano casette bodies are TOTALLY INcompatible, BUT I have had good luck with finding Campi casettes online (eBay) and having no interchange problems between my wheels and Shimano or Campi 9-speed shifters and derailleurs on several bikes. I switch wheels without concern for the other hardware.

Within Campi there may be incompatibilities, though. If your wheels have an 8-speed Campi cassette now I think you'll be ok.

Ow do the cassettes conect to the back wheel screw on or push ?


Cassettes fit on a spline with a lock nut to keep them there, the spline is also the ratchet.
Older bikes had a ratchet/sprocket assembly which screwed onto a threaded hub

What kind of components do I need?


Most bikes have Shimano shifters & deraillers; SRAM is the other main vendor. Shimano makes a wide range; the following table attempts to describe these and presents my best guess of where the SRAM line fits in: Model Quality SRAM Equivalent?
SIS, Tourney (or just says Shimano) Mainly designed for riding around the neighborhood
Altus Sufficient for paved or very easy trails; avoid hills 3.0
Acera Slightly better, but won't shift well under stress; capable for easy casual riding 4.0
Alivio Minimal capable for recreational riding; will handle some hard riding 5.0
STX / Deore Entry-level components for hard riding; tough & reliable 7.0
LX The minimum standard for hard riding. Reliable & responsive 9.0
XT More responsive than LX, but still reasonable tough 9.0SL
XTR Light, responsive racing components; tend to be quite expensive; often sacrifices toughness for responsiveness X.0


Look for a component set that fits your expected riding style.

Note:The numbered SRAM components aren't compatible with Shimano components. SRAM does make grip-shifters that are Shimano-compatible.

There are many other manufacturers that specialize in various components (Avid, Cane Creek, Race Face, Hope) and make great ones. Ask the LBS personnel for a comparison if you see a brand you don't know. Also, you can use the same test as forks above: if its not sold separately, its probably more questionable. If you're getting a full-suspension bike, make sure you get a good rear shock as well (it'll probably be something other than SRAM or Shimano).

Hi. I've had this problem before and it's infuriating. I've renewed my Chain wheel, Chain,and 8 speed cassette. It works fine on the stand. However when road testing I find that in either of the front 3...


Try using a Shimano hyperglide chain. I know they are more expensive but they fit better. The reason is the angle that the teeth of the cogs and gears are machined at. The idler wheels should be replaced too if you think they are worn. Also make sure that the tension spring in the derailleur is getting weak. They can be replaced with a little work. Here's some sites with info that will help:http://www.parktool.com/repair/byregion.asp?catid=5 Also:http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/tools.html Please let me know if this helped.

I just bought a set of crossmax st wheels and cannot figure out how to put the centerlock rotors on. The tool will not fit over the axel housing and I cannot figure how to disassemble them.


I don't know exactly what you are looking for but I found a couple of links that might help you:http://www.mavic.com/medias/tips/pdf_dl/FTSX_0.pdf and http://www.mavic.com/medias/tips/pdf_dl/2008_wheel_user-guide.pdf Here is where I found these:http://www.mavic.com/mtb/tips/user_guides.aspx

HELLO, I HAVE A DURA ACE 7900 MODEL CASSETTE AND WOULD LIKE TO PUT IT ON A KSYRIUM SL RIM, DO I HAVE TO PUT THE SPACER ON IT BEFORE THE WHOLE CASSETTE GOES ON? THE CASSETTE IS A 12-25 GEAR.


In my experience with Shimano cassettes on Mavic wheels, the answer is "yes" but i had a mountain wheel and cassette. The only way to know is to put it on and see if there is slop in the fitment. If there is, then you have your answer. i also had this problem with Mavic: i had to adjust the high and low settings on my rear derailleur because of the awkward spacing of the Mavic freehub. Just something you should be aware of in case you have difficulty with shifting after the install. By the way - although they are inferior cassettes, SRAM cassettes seem to fit Mavic freehubs better.

Freewheel on Mavic SSC-SL turns with tire/wheel rotation


Not sure if you ever got a response. I can help with half the issue. These Mavic SSC-SL wheels are a breeze to disassemble the rear hub (I've done so many times). I have these wheels on road bikes AND cross bikes. You DON'T need (nor want to use a vise). Yes, the one side is a 5 mm allen key. While the other side seems like it has nothing, you can actually (with your hand) simply grab the black axle and pull it away/off the hub. It will be a bit stubborn, but trust me, it comes off. There is an O-ring on the inside that simply keeps it sealed and on. Once you have that part off, you now insert a 10 mm allen key. With the 5mm in the other side, you can now twist and remove the entire axle and freehub. Careful, the freehub will now come off the axle, exposing the seals, a washer, AND 2 pawls that are in place by springs. Be careful not to lose the springs.

There's not much to it. Now simply inspect, lube and reassemble. Btw, this is also how you change your wheel from a Shimano hub to a campy hub.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Corey
