    10 speed cassette on old M565 freehub?

    Hello,

    I'm rebuilding a vintage f1000 canondale, planning to install a complete SLX set on it. The original freehub is an 8-speed shimano LX FH-M565. Is it compatible with a 10-speed CS-HG81-10 cassette?

    If not, what can I do - replace the freehub as well?

    Thanks,

    Amit

    Not sure if this helps or not but I put a 10s cassette on a m529 slx 8s hub no problem. I'd say if splines line up and chainline is ok would be good to go. I'm finding shimano stuff is cool like that.

    Should work - 7 speed won't, 8 speed should be OK.

    8,9 and 10 spd cassettes all use the same width freehub for road and mountain bikes. It will work.

    Thanks, guys. Since it's quiet an old hub (15+ years) I wasn't sure it'll work. Now it seems I can go ahead and order a complete SLX set for my old bike :-)
