Looking at buying a Domane 4.7 with 11 speed Ultegra does anyone know if I can run 11 speed cassette on 2012 Ksyrium elites or can i fit a wider freehub

Thanks Dave

    Yes, Mavic freehubs have been longer than Shimano for quite a while so they are 11 speed compatible. Just remove all spacers on the freehub when mounting the cassette.
  • Thanks for the reply ,thats good news these spec changes often snowball ,dont suppose you know if a 10 and 11 speed chainset are the same

    Technically they are slightly different but in practice they are completely interchangeable in my experience.
