From a lost era, but still relevant (even more relevant if you've been on velocipede lately). A berry rare, berry nice wheelset. Colnago branded, Ambrosio Nemesis Rims laced to 32H Polished Record hubs (rear is 8s Record Ti). Wheelsmith bladed spokes. It's my understanding that in 1996 one would have to travel to Ernesto Colnago's house and personally deliver a check.

Anyhoo, I've been hoarding these for a minute and my plan was to rebuild the rear wheel for 10/11s. But it's haaaaard to find a nice 32H polished Record rear hub; I'm just not connected enough.

Here are the "pertinents":

Ambrosio Nemesis 32H Rims, decent wear on rear sidewall
Wheelsmith AE15 ovalized aero lightweight spokes (lighter than CX-Rays)
Front radial lacing (campy used to be qoo with this) and rear 3x
Campag Record hubs, 8s Ti Rear
Vittoria Corsa Evo-Cx in front, Veloflex Criterium in back, gumwall, few hundred miles, should be reglued doe.

Never seen one of these wheelsets for sale so how about $500 plus actual shipping?

For what it's worth, you can put a freehub body to fit 10sp.

Did it with my shamals.

That's what I've heard but isn't it a PITA? Would I need to replace the axle as well?

It's not difficult, you just need to find the right freehub. I think the ones from veloce hubs work.

This might help.

Mirage bell shaped is what you're lookin for.

What's the difference in the 8spd record hubs vs the 9/10 ones they later made?

8spd (and early 9spd) hubs have a traditional steel axle setup. The later hubs have an oversize aluminum axle.
