Fulcrum Racing 7 2014 & 9 Speed

Postby Octopus1 » Thu Aug 29, 2013 15:20 pm

I'm thinking about upgrading the wheels on my tricross to Racings 7's.
As the 2014 are now 10/11 speed and I have a 9 speed tiagra cassette, could somebody confirm the spacers needed.
Wiggle are telling me I need the supplied spacer plus another 1mm spacer.

Thanks

For 9 speed you should need only the supplied spacer, for ten speed you should need both, but they might be right. The 1 mm Shimano spacer is very easy to find in any case

Tiagra has a built on spacer does it not! This would do away with the 1mm.
Yellow is the new Black.

I bought my wife some racing 5's earlier this year - 11 speed hub - 8 speed went straight on ... then off, put the supplied spacer on and then the 8 speed went on correctly! ;)

Supplied spacer for fulcrum 5's 11 speed is for both 9 & 10 speed.
