Buying parts for an extra set of wheels: will a an 11 speed freehub body accept a 12 speed cassette?

To give a definitive answer: No it won't. The length of the spline body just isn't long enough. Similarly, you cannot fit a 11s on a 10s body. I tested this because I got a trainer over the winter for ...
