Hi, does anyone make a free hub body to convert the 6700 wheel set from 10 to 11 speed? I'm not finding anything compatible online.

If you really need 11 speed, your best bet is to buy a new 6800 rear wheel, or wheelset, and sell the existing wheels on CL or EPay. New rears from UK suppliers are $220, wheelsets about $300.

Anything else to adapt shimano 10 speed hubs to 11 speed is a kludge, and usually an expensive one.
You can use the new 10 speed Tiagra 4700 shifters with the 6700 wheels though. These are similar to 5800/6800 shifters, but 10 speed instead of 11. You will need new derailleurs to go with those shifters, old stuff is not compatible.

There is the Shimano Tiagra FH-RS400 11speed hub, it has retained the 10mm through axle.
You could try to screw it's freehub body to your WH-6700 wheel set.
If that works you have to replace the spacer on the left side with a thinner one and center the wheel.

I just don't want to be wrong about anything when I sell these wheels to a pal. His bike is 11spd so naturally these questions arise.

Thanks again.
