    :confused: I want to use a Campagnolo Nucleon wheel on a bike with a Shimano Sora 8-sp. rear derailleur. I need help to choose a 8-sp. cassette that will fit and shift smooth, if there is any available.

    There are several cassettes available that will transfer over from Campag to Shimano or in reverse.

    Miche is one, there is another Italian brand Marchietto ( or similar cant quite remember?)

    This is only the case for 10 speed that you need to buy special(expensive) casettes.
    For 8 or 9 speed the regular casettes will be very close between Shimano and Campa, you just might have to change some of the rings between the cogs(for 9 speed for example campa is 2mm wider, you won't notice or can resolve it when you have small problems by substituting 3 or 4 rings)

    Mmmmn Miche actually do a full range for Shimano and Campag, as well as their own:

    Shimano 7-8 & 9sp
    Campag 8,9,10sp
    Miche 8 & 9

    Sure you can interchange the spacers but then you have to make sure the width of these are the right thickness as there is a variation between the cassette sprockets them selves as well as 'ramping', you would have to experiment.

    There also is another Italian maker really nice stuff called Tiso who do 8-9 speed in both Shimano & Campag

    Miche cassettes are invarably cheaper than the genuine brands and good quality
