    They’re a genuine shop by the looks of it, based in Como, Italy.

    Might need to add 20% vat and whatever other tax onto that price.

    Showing as €1800 now, €1900 for XX1. If based in Italy VAT should already be added.

    Weird, I searched from the home page and couldn’t see that.

    Edit, ah, shows €1800 on the search results, but £1227 when you click into the description, odd…

    Could be dodgy but quite tempted to have a punt, as should at least be protected with PayPal

    Any news?

    Could be dodgy

    True, but at least they did go to the trouble of renting and branding a warehouse (as of July 2018, mind): https://www.google.com/maps/@45.76085,9.0835724,3a,29.4y,189.21h,91.71t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1ssrKF-r7-PKnwG_95WAMdyQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

    Anyway, prices seem to have dropped slightly, €1677 for X01 on r2-bike.

    It added 22% tax at the checkout – still a good price but going to hold off for the moment…

    Anyone know when they will be available as separates rather than the whole groupset?

    Premier Icon ta11pau1
    Subscriber

    Officially, who knows. But some places are selling the ‘essential kit’ with rear mech, controller and battery/charger.

    All the rumours seem to point to July?August time.

    Also, everything has arrived for mine now…

    out of interest, i seem to have set both the RD and reverb as ‘master’, meaning the app won’t let me assign them to the same bike, so i can’t play with the button assignments, anyone know how i can restart the whole process? manual says to follow in app instructions, but it isn’t obvious…

    Between £1500-£1600 on Bike-Discount. Just need about £1400 then I can get it 🙂

    It’s 1627 euros on r2-bike.com, under £1400 at todays exchange rate.

    just topped up the axs price and ordered a deviate guide. Lame.

    tomhoward,

    To prevent multiple master devices you need to pair all devices on your bike within a single pairing session. For example:

    1. Begin the pairing session at the rear derailleur. Press and hold the AXS button until the green LED blinks slowly, then release.

    2. Next Press and hold the AXS button reverb until the LED blinks quickly.

    3. Next Press and hold the AXS button left controller until the LED blinks quickly.

    4. Next Press and hold the AXS button right controller until the LED blinks quickly.

    5. Then press and release the AXS button on the rear derailleur to end the pairing session, or wait 30 seconds for the pairing session to time out.

    Cheers T-800, will give that whirl this morning, thought I’d done that previously, but may have screwed it up in haste.

    Will report back

    Anyone got a discount code for r2-bikes please? Groupset and seatpost for 2k, still too much but it feels ‘close’ to what could be acceptable with some organ sales!

    Premier Icon tomhoward
    Subscriber

    No discounts from me I’m afraid, but 10 points to T800!

    I’ve had it for a few weeks and have decided it’s not for me so shall be selling my X01 AXS mech and Shifter/controller. Looking at around £1050 for the pair if anyone is keen.

    Shifts amazingly well, but not jelled with the controller and the ergonomics of it.

    Premier Icon ta11pau1

    Bike-components.de have 10% off sram at the moment, haven’t tried the code to confirm it works but they have the full boost X01 groupset at 1511.60 euros, so 1360 euros which is £1194.

    That’s if the code works, but it’s on the front page so don’t see why it won’t.

    Oh and prices are up on r2-bike for the mech and ‘shifter’ – 750 and 200 euros, then another 70 euros for the battery and charger.

    Boost is just for fat bikes, yes? So I’d have just DUB, not DUB BOOST for a 2015 T-130, yes?

    Premier Icon ta11pau1
    Subscriber

    No, boost is just a 3mm wider chain line, which I think is all in the chainring on sram stuff. stick on a non boost chainring and you’re good. The boost chainring might even give a better chain line for you.

    The 170mm model is more expensive than the 175mm one on Bike-components.de too so watch out for that.

    Don’t forget the bottom bracket too.

    Premier Icon tomhoward

    If you have a 148 rear hub, you need DUB Boost, normal DUB for 142.

    Though I’d wait a little longer for the official release of the separates, if you already have a cassette/crank etc.

    UK pricing for the separates has been confirmed to us

    Mech – £670
    Shifter – £200
    Upgrade kit (Mech, shifter, battery, charger – £975

    Stock should be a week or so if folks are interested. @18bikes.co.uk">info@18bikes.co.uk

    We have X01 170mm Boost groupsets on offer down to £1550 – a little overstocked given that the separates are now on the way, so we’re having a clearout.

    Premier Icon tomhoward

    I thought stock was due mid July?

    Premier Icon ta11pau1
    Subscriber

    You’d think that the battery and charger would come with the mech, seeing as it’s a paperweight without it…!

    I presume that’s all X01 level pricing? Give it a month or 3, it might be down to £700 for the upgrade kit.

    Premier Icon tomhoward

    XX1 and X01 upgrade kits are the same price.

    Premier Icon tomhoward

    Also, some folk will already have batteries and chargers, so not always necessary.

    DickBarton

    Might wait for the upgrade bits and chuck in a 12-speed cassette as well then…I really don’t need 12-speed as the dinner plate is purely due to cocking up the range at the front by going 1x – but I really like 1x and AXS is really appealing. Absolutely no real justification to wanting it other than it appeals…so I’ll probably wait a while longer (and hopefully the requirement will pass as it is a seriously eye-watering price (I know I keep mentioning this but I’m trying to stop myself wanting to buy it due to the cost!).

    Premier Icon timbog160

    Bought the full kit in 175 flavour from bike components – my current cranks are 170, but as I’ve recently added 10mm to my fork travel I figure she’ll be right!

    Also, I have decided I have to have that multi tool.

    Oh and Tom your bike looks mint!

    I can’t decide whether SRAM have pulled a fast one here – ie launch with a truly eye-watering price, and then reduce it fairly quickly in order to make you feel as if you’ve got a ‘bargain’.

    Is there any more feedback on this?

    I’ve always used shimano but the microspline bullshit is annoying me cos I can’t get a freehub for my King hub’s.

    There are lots of horror stories about mech’s being eaten in SRAM’s mechanical groupo and that concerns me.

    I’ve had a proper ride on it now, what do you want to know?

    I just bought it, 1417 euros from r2 bike. Unfortunately won’t get to ride it until next month as I also need the dropper to finish my new bike off.

    Upgrade Kit seems ‘cheap’ – if it is a legit site – https://www.bellatisport.com/shop/shopping/product_details.php?id=5046

    This also seems a ‘good’ price (and site is legit) – https://www.bike-components.de/en/SRAM/X01-Eagle-AXS-1×12-speed-Trigger-Upgrade-Kit-p71591/

    Anyone heard of Bellatosport? Is it reputable? This could be a potential interest.

    Premier Icon tomhoward

    Remember the belati one is exVAT. Never heard of them but not too cheap to be true.

    Bike components link isn’t working but they have it at €880 elsewhere on the site?

    Ridewill.it are a real shop, they’ve turned up regularly on Fatbike forums for years, but I thought usually with relatively low end product. I’ve never heard anything *bad* about them…
