- Simano/Sram/Both.. what's your flavour and why?

Shimano everything over SRAM.
SRAM designed for dry dusty California trails.Shimano designed in Japan with a very similar climate to ours. Mud.
The only bit I like of the SRAM house stuff is Rockshox. It used to be Fox only for me but with the delicate nature of Fox these days I prefer the more robustness of Rockshox. And the price.
+1 (apart from the dusty bit. IIRC SRAM started in Chicago and now has a base in Colorado – both get rain. Happy to be proven wrong on this.)Posted 4 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
Are the folks out there who don’t really care?
Gearing for me is a distant fifth or sixth behind stuff like suspension, brakes, wheels and the like. Think I even reach for my dropper these days before a gear. Really don’t give the smoothness of shifitng much thought.Posted 4 years agomaximusmountainMember
Sram all round (cross, road and mtb) as it makes my kit interchangeable so if I brake a mech, no problem, just use another one from the other bike. I prefer the agricultural feel as well, shimano always felt a bit light to me.
