Just wondering if it's possible to change the hub so it can accept an 11 speed cassette...

I'm thinking about a new entry level road bike and some come with ultegra 11 speed gearing...

In the past I have used 8 speed campy cassettes with shimano shifters and they seemed to work fine, so i thought, maybe, my 10 speed record hub would work with either 10 speed ultegra/105 or 11 speed if i can upgrade the campy hub somehow...

One option I recently saw, but it's expensive, is a Time Fluidity First complete bike that comes with Campagnolo Veloce 10 speed...that could be a good solutions for me, but damn, it's near 3000 euros and i didn't want to spend that much...ok, all made in france frame, lifetime warranty...

check it out...I've read some really good reviews about the bike quality, handling, etc...

most of the bikes i've been checking out are entry level cannondale, specialized, giant, etc...around 1800 with 105 or ultegra mix...

I'm 99.9% certain that you can run Campag 11 spd cassettes on the 10 spd hubs. It is the Shimano 10 spd hubs that require conversions to 11 spd.

I am %100 certain you can use an 11 speed campy cassette on any campy freehub. They are compatible from 8 speed to 11 speed. In fact the 11 speed cassette is pretty compatible with Shimano drivetrains so you can use a Campy freehub and 11 speed cassette without having to redish your wheel. This might be the best way to update 10 speed shimano wheels where the manufacturer offers campy or shimano free hubs. I converted to 11 speed 2 years ago just for the 12-29 cassette.

I think it is 9sp and up. I am pretty sure 8sp used a narrower freehub body.

Yes, this is correct. I have a pair of 8 spd original Shamals that were pretty much useless. Had to install a DA hub so I could make it 9/10 spd.
