    11-Speed MTB and Road Hub Compatibility

    Are Shimano 11 speed cassette freehubs the same on MTB hubs and road hubs? For example, can I run a 105 11-32 cassette on an 11 speed MTB with an XTR derailleur?

    11-Speed MTB and Road Hub Compatibility

    My understanding is: no. They are different - road 11 speed hubs are wider so 11 speed cassettes won't fit on a 10 speed road hub. Shimano fixed this with the MTB 11 speed by keeping hub width the same (as 10 speed) and overhanging the largest cog over the spoke side of the hub body.
