Loking at buying a pair of fulcrum 7 wheels of ebay.. they have campi free hubs, and my current wheels have shimano freehubs, with a sram casette..(9 speed)

will a sram casette fit on campi hubs?
 
From what i understand sram and shimano are pretty compatable. But not campag.

At least thats whats i've been told. Im sure someone on here will know for sure.

Unless you're keen on a whole load of fettling and conflicting advice, I'd get some with Shimano splines meself.

+1 - though Shimano spaced cassettes that fit Campag type freehubs are available - can't remember where from at the moment, sorry.

They're out there, but they're £££. Campag spacing on Shimano splines are more common.

Having searched for that I realise I may be wrong - but you can do it the other way round - Ambrosio make a Campag spaced cassette that fits a Shimano freehub. However it appears you can get a replacement freehub that fits Fulcrum (Campag) hubs http://www.totalcycling.com/index.php/product/parts_accessories/wheels_road/SPC_freehub_S9.html that will allow you to fit a Shimano or SRAM cassette - will cost you £59.99 though.

Damn and blast... oh well, cheapo casettes are only 30 quid online...
I take it you did actually buy them then?

As said above, you can either change the freehub body for a Shimano one or change your whole groupset.

Or sell them and buy a Shimano compatible wheelset.

I run a 9 speed Campag cassette (on a Campag compatible hub) with Shimano bar end shifters and Shimano rear derailleur and it works perfectly. Don't know about integrated brake/shifters though. If you can find someone who can loan you a 9 sp Campag cassette, you could give it a try before you buy one yourself.
