|Will it work? Is it as simple as removing the present 8 spd hub and installing the deore 8 speed? i want the additional climbing range the mtb gears offer.|

|The cassette will exchange just fine.
The issues are: Will the rear derailleur handle the larger cassette? and Will the chain be long enough? I'm betting not. You can almost never change just one part on a bicycle.
