A silly question about wheels.

Postby thecaptn » Sun Jun 23, 2013 1:51 pm

Hi All,
I have fulcrums on my road bike and am looking at a second hand mavic wheelset to set up for climbing, will the casette sit in the same position relative to the rear deralier on both wheels or will I need to fine tune the deralier every time I change wheels?

Also, I'm running 10 speed at the moment, if these mavics are set up with an 11 speed hub how easily can one obtain a spacer for fitting a 10 speed casette?

Thanks,
Pete

Mavics from way back have been supplied with a 2mm thick spacer (way before 11-sp. was even thought of, it's a compensatory spacer to take into account the wider cassettes when set up for Campagnolo). Simply ensure both this spacer and the thin one that goes with the 10-sp. cassette are fitted & you're away. You may need to adjust the derailleur slightly, but there's no way of knowing until you chuck the wheels in & give them a spin.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
