swap 9 speed cassette for a 10 speed
I bought a pair of Khamsin wheels a couple of years ago with a 9 speed cassette and this year I bought a new bike fitted with Khamsins and a 10 speed cassette. I bought a new cassette with a larger gear spread to use for mountain training but when I tried to fit it to my old Khamsins it was too wide. Can anyone explain how I fit the 10 speed to my old wheels as I believe it is possible?
The reason is I want to be able to quickly change wheels so I have the correct spread of gears for the ride I will be doing. as well as having a replacement wheel when racing.
On the evening of the day I asked this question I tried again to fit the 10 spd cassette to my old wheels and to my surprise it fitted, I'm not sure but I think the lock nut may have a slightly longer thread on it than the 9 speed and maybe last time I got them mixed up. Anyway it works and I have been out on the bike with no problems
