I am in the process of slowly upgrading my drivetrain as stuff wears out or as I get good deals. I managed to get a good deal on some wheels and am planning to add an Ultegra cassette.

Here is my questions, will this be compatible with my Tiagra rear derailleur.

BTW, the reason I'm not using my existing cassette is because the old wheelset will be used for cross riding and the new set will be used for road riding and cross racing.
Depends on the shifter...Nater

and not the cassette. If you have 9speed Tiagra STI levers, an Ultegra cassette will work just fine. I'm not going to get into the wear issues of a chain/cassette/chainrings. (You may need at least a new chain too).
