Powertap newbie-can I use 10-speed cassette?

Can I use a 10-speed cassette with a powertap hub? I ask because when I spin the wheel backwards, It sounds like something is hitting the spokes. Going forward seems smooth enough.

The wheel is not mounted, this is just my initial observation after just installing the cassette.

There looks to be just a tiny little bit of clearance between my 27 and the spokes. Have I installed it wrong, or do I need to use a 9-speed instead? I'm using Shimano 12-27 if that helps.

Edit, I just found the last spacer, it was still on my old wheel.

Nothing to see, move along

Yes...I just got my new PT SL 2.4 and had to use some spacers behind the 10-speed cassette to pull it away from the spokes. Just make sure that there's enough of the cassette body to fully engage the smallest cog and enough threads to tightened it down with the lockring. Otherwise, you risk spinning the smallest cog.

Have fun!
