Is it possible to convert Mavic cosmic Carbones, campy 8 to a Shimano 9 speed setup?
 
I think so. You'll need a Campy 8sp loose cog cassette plus a cog. I beelieve that you can file a
9sp cog to go onto an 8sp body. Each cog is 1.9 mm. Space them with 2.5 mm spacers. for 4.4 mm cog
to cog. I think the hub body is wide enough.

8 x 1.9 = 15.2 8x 2.5 = 20 1 x 1.9 = 1.9

Total width 37.1

A Campy 8sp cassette is 36.9

It will work fine on either a Campy 9 or Shimano 9 system.
