All of Shimano's 9 speed cassettes should be interchangeable. Similar for 10 speed cassettes. What one may run into, is that the rear derailleur does not have the range to accommodate a bigger cassette.
QuoteThe stock wheels have Mavic A719s with a 135mm rear hub spacing that allows the use of a wide range (with 34 tooth low cog) mountain cassette.We have a couple of bikes in our stable with that big a cassette on 130mm hubs. 135 is not necessary, because the Shimano/SRAM spacing between cogs is still 4.34mm (center to center) regardless of the size of cogs, so the thickness of the cassette piles up to the same.
