What is the difference between Shimano and Campagnolo?

Will a Shimano cassette fit on a campy hub?
A Shimano 11 speed chain will mesh fine with an 11spd campy cassette and the indexing is nearly bang on.
Do all cassettes fit all hubs?
Simply put – 8, 9, 10 speed cassettes all fit on the same hub. A seven speed cassette will fit on an 8 speed freehub with the use of a spacer. (One notable exception is the Dura Ace FH-7801 hub with an alloy freehub which will only accept 10 speed Shimano cassettes – the newer Dura Ace hubs can run 8/9/10).
Can you put a 12 speed cassette on a 9 speed hub?
12-speed cassettes used to be just limited to wheels with XD drivers on the back, but now you can use a 12-speed cassette on any mountain bike wheel with the SunRace MZ90 12-speed 11-50T cassette. It will fit any Shimano or SRAM 8, 9, or 10-speed freehub body, and Shimano Dynasys 11-speed mountain freehub bodies.
Why are groupsets so expensive?
The metal treatments and high-strength alloys that make pivots and bearings more durable and that also make parts lighter are expensive, so better groupsets are pricier. Another reason is that a bike with a complete groupset almost always works better than one with a mix of parts from different manufacturers.

Tight Chain A tight-fitting chain can also be a source of ghost pedaling. If the chain is really tight and there’s no slack, the subtle movement of the cassette may be enough to spin the chain a bit and with it the pedals.
How do I know if my free hub needs replacing?
Check the freehub for wear to see if it needs replacing or just cleaning and relubing. To do this, firmly grab the splined body and give it a wiggle. If it moves more than a couple of millimetres side to side, replace it.

Which is better, SRAM or Campagnolo groupets?
Sram have taken market share from both Campagnolo and Shimano with innovative thinking in the design process. Not content to merely bring technologies across from MTB component manufacturing, Sram broke new ground, developing new components. Sram groupsets are the lightest at each comparable price point.
What kind of freehub do I need for Shimano?
For example, if you have a 10-speed Shimano/SRAM groupset, buy an 11-speed freehub. The same goes for XD & XDR; if you have an XD groupset, buy an XDR freehub. The 1.8 mm spacer allows you to have versatility should you upgrade your groupset in the future.
