- Shadow+ Vs. Type 2. – FIGHT!
Ok, easy question, tricky answer.
I’m going 1×10 with a clutchy thingy because I think it will help/believe the hype. I need a reason to choose X9 or XT. Given that there is not much to split them on price or weight it must come down to function right?
So as Harry Hill puts it, there’s only one way to find out!Posted 6 years agoc_klein87Member
i’ve gone Type 2, x.0 but only because i’m a ponce. Chose sram as i’ve used their x.0 mech for the last 2 years with no issue (it died last week when then cage broke) The nifty tension release for removing wheels seems a good idea, but as I haven’t built the bike yet i can’t add anymore experiencePosted 6 years agoYoKaiserSubscriber
I’ve just bought Zee rear and XT shifter as per
for my 1X10 set up. I’ll be using XX1 type rings to go with it too.Posted 6 years agobutterbeanMember
Shimano 10spd without a doubt.
Just ask your collection of LBS’s what they think of SRAM 10spd stuff compared to Shimano.
Although they like the fact that people have to keep coming back to buy new mech’s, because the SRAM ones keep wearing out & Fishers never have any stock of spare bits…Posted 6 years agodirtbiker100Member
Was always a SRAM user but decided to go with Shimano this time – multi direction up shift lever and more definitive changes than shimano used to be.Posted 6 years ago
Went with Zee mech and XT shifter and its all good so far, chain comes off more than I was expecting though, even with a top guide.
Was looking at Zee for this. Think there are 2 versions though for 11-28 and 11-36 cassettes. No idea if the 11-36 version has enough spare capacity for chain growth on FS bikes. Hope it does, cos otherwise it’s right on the limit.
Good point bit I’m hoping as they are marketing this as a free ride/DH mech then that’ has been thought about and engineered in.Posted 6 years ago
