- Sram X0 ghost shifting
My X0 rear mech has started ghost shifting in the higher gears, its not the indexing or the chain or the cassette as I replaced them all I’m pretty good at setting the gears up. The mech does seem to have some play in it, its over 18 months old and done alot of miles. Is the shifting due do the play in the mech or could it be somethinf else? I’m considering buying a new mech, X7 or X9 because X0 is silly money.

Did it start ghost shifting after you replaced the chain and cassette?
Have you replaced the cables? Or outers?
Chances are its the cable outer which has the metal poking out from the sheath at the ferrule end. This tends to flex under use, and will cause weird shifting.
Simple fix, take the cable out of the outer and trim the exposed metal, and reassemble.
Unlikely to be the mech, and play is normal.Posted 4 years ago
