Is the cable pull of XX compatible with teh road groups then, that could allow all sorts of fun options?
Sram XX - is 2 x 10 the future?
It's only SRAM - not like anyone'll buy the stuff. When Shimano do a 10 speed off road set up, then I guess we'll have to consider the pros and cons.
but the question remains will be mech snap at the sight of a twig, i guess there won't be much change from £250??
more interested in what can be done with the new FSA chainset and shimano mechs.
jeez not even launched and the NIMBY's are out in force.. or seeing Red, looking for a rival....
36T sprocket = aluminium.
Since its seldom used, and made of a nice hard 7075 Al it will last well.
don;t knock it till you try it. I had 2x9 for many years and been running 2x10 fir a while. brilliant! bring it on.
For Racers only..?
Put the NIMBY mindset away for a while and think about this clearly.
3x9 gives you 13 usable ratios, 2x10 gives you 14... nuff said.
XX uses Road 10speed cable pull ratio therefore it isNOT compatible with X.0, X.9 or X.7
It will work with road Double tap flat bar shifters,...apparently,...so I'm told.
Brakes are strng enough to kill you with a 180mm rotor.
I think I'll stick with my hub gearing.
I'd certainly give it a go when it trickles down to xt level. Perhaps it's the latent roadie in me?
Bit more info here.
Any more questions for me to ask the designers? I'll be chatting to them at lunchtime.....
Any more questions for me to ask the designers?
Ask them if they get hacked off with inane questions or statements like "It will snap off in the first crash" or "That will dig holes in an alloy freehub"?
or if they get hacked off with grumpy bike designers You miserable git, Brant
