My current set up is Ultegra 6700 (ten speed). I'd like to upgrade to 11 speed so was wondering if I could do this with new shifters and cassette only. Has anyone tried this successfully? Or do I need to get mechs as well?
Any help appreciated
Cassette: You can get an Edco Monoblock, or an Ultegra cassette that's been machined for 10sp freehubs- there's someone on ebay offering these.
In case you have Mavic wheels, Mavic 10s freehubs will also fit 11s cassettes.
Generally though, 11s cassettes are too wide for 10s freehubs.

Not true with shimano.
rear D is different, front cable pull is different... it will not work well if it does work at all.
You can re-use your brakes and crankset.
Need chain, cassette, derailleurs and shifters to the best of my knowledge.

I heard they did change it for 11spd but no idea how much or which way.

Will Shimano’s 6700/7900 rear derailleurs work with the newer 11-speed 6800/9000 shifters and 11-speed cassettes?
Yes, Shimano Ultegra 6800 and Dura-Ace 9000 11-speed shifters and 11-speed cassettes work flawlessly with Shimano Ultegra 6700 and Dura-Ace 7900 10-speed derailleurs. And since the 11-speed levers require substantially less shifting force, you should get a lighter shifting feel as well as an extra gear!

That's cool... it wouldn't be the first time if he was wrong, but I hope he is right.
