Hi folks, working on my cyclocross spec and am wondering if I can purchase a Shimano 6800 Ultegra freehub body (about $50 USD) and attach that to 29er wheels with Shimano M629 centerlock hubs. The spacing on the 29er wheels is already 135 mm. If I can simply screw on a new Ultegra 6800 body I can go 11 speed with wheels I've got.

Anyone do anything like this?
