Giant SLR 2 42 DISC wheels compatibility

    Howdy all, I just got a great deal on a pair of these wheels but agreed and paid for them with little thought of compatibility. I run Campagnolo. Officially giant doesn't offer a freehub for campag, but I do remember that older giant wheels did use DT Swiss internals. Is that still the case? Could I get a DT swiss freehub body?

    If it's 11 speed, then an 11 speed Shimano / SRAM cassette should work with Campag. Might need to adjust the derailleur but you should be ok. A friend is running a 11-speed Shimano 105 wheel on a Campag SR bike without issue.

    Yeah the spacing on a shimano cassette should work fine with campag if it's 11 speed.

    Interestingly, the giant website for the SLR 2 36mm model mentions the hubs are campag compatible, I wonder what the difference is

    i've done the same in a pinch, swapped out my wheel DT swiss 23 spline (12-29 chorus cassette) for Fulcrum 3 (11-28 ultegra) from another bike running 6800

    ...Heresy I know...
