    Changing from 10 spr to 11 spd

    Last summer my CF frame broke in a crash. I'm in the process of buying a new bike, but I'd like to use my existing wheels, which are 10 spd. The bike will be all Ultegra with rim brakes.
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    Extrapolating from tlg's response, what you need to do is put an 11s cassette on your wheels instead of the 10s cassette you have now. A new set of cogs is all you need to do.

    Not if his hubs aren't 11s compatible.

    Did you mean to specify a special conversion cassette like Lasco makes? Otherwise just slapping on a new cassette ain't going to work with the exception of certain Mavic hubs.

    I'm pretty sure Mavic's (Shimano-compatible hubs) have always been 11sp compatible.

    My Father used to tell me 'If you want good answers, ask good questions...'.

    It's hard to tell exactly what you are looking for, but you'll need an 11 speed freehub on your wheel to support an 11 speed cassette. If the wheel is currently 10 speed, you are probably out of luck. If there is a 1.8mm spacer behind your 10 speed cassette, then an 11 speed cassette will probably work (without the spacer).

    This is one of the most un-answerable questions I've seen on here. It's not even a question. If it is...
    Yes.
    No.
    Maybe.
    Pick one...if you're actually asking a question.

    To be fair, his name is Mr. Versatile... you have to expect a certain amount of ambiguity.
