I've just bought a winter bike but it's a 10 speed shimano ultegra set up.

I'm gona change to a 11 speed shimano set up.

I have different wheels with a shimano11-32 cassete on it and have bought a shimano long cage derauler.

Is that all I have to do, or do I have to change the shifters, some people say yes and some no.

Yes you'll need to change the shifters.

Personally I'd have stuck with 10-speed if its a winter bike and gone with the 12-30 cassette option for 6700 if you need the range for the hills. It's a lot of faff for an extra cog.

You definitely have to change the shifters. Probably not worth the hassle, unless you really like spannering.
