As title suggests, Will an 11 speed cassette fit on an 9 speed hub, or do they need a longer carrier cassette carrier? I know the rear mech will be different.
I'm not a racer, but I like to churn out 2-3hr rides,
I love Cannock and Llandegla cycle parks.

    Shimano or SRAM 11 speed?

    I think the rear cassette is a Shimano HG

    What parts are we talking about?

    The only 11 speed Shimano mountain bike cassette is XTR, which isn't released yet, bit will fit on 9/10 speed freehub bodies.

    Shimano/SRAM 11 speed road cassettes will not fit on 9/10 speed freehub bodies, they need a slightly longer one. SRAM 11 speed MTB cassettes (ie XX1, X01 and X1) require an XD body, which is totally different.

    THANKS very much NJee for clearing that up. I was thinking of upgrading & maybe building a project. it's not straight forward that all cassettes & hubs will match up.

    The SRAM system uses a special freehub body (XD I want to say) to fit the 10t on the cassette - not all hubs are able to be converted to take the freehub body needed. XX1 is hideously pricey too.

    1x10 is your budget buddy.

    If only someone had said that a day before, without the uncertainty...
