Cog spacing is the same (I think!), obviously the ratios are different, but the way they’re designed is that MTB cassettes overhang the 11t cog beyond the end of the free hub overhangs the big sprocket inboard of the freehub to get the spread, where as road freehubs are slightly wider to accommodate the extra width of the cassette.
I’d you google something to the effect of ‘hg800 10 speed freehub’ you’ll see what I mean.
The other option is swap for a Campag freehub & casette, Campag also managed to make 11sp cassettes fit 10sp hubs (again someone correct me if I’m wrong). All 11sp cassettes are cross compatible in practice. That would make it easier to get road appropriate ratios.
Hmmm true, I read about the Campagnolo option but it's not necessarily a cheap thing to swap the freehub body.
However, I'm also considering experimenting with a 1x setup, in which case an 11-34t cassette might not even be that wrong.
Thanks for your help!
