- Sram xd driver cassette
Can anyone recommend a good value 10-42 11sp cassette. (They’re expensive compared to Shimano)
Always run Shimano, so not much experience with the SRAM xd driver.

The Sram XG-1150 is your best bet, not cheap-cheap but not expensive by modern standards and they can last two years IME.
Sunrace do one as well, but I don’t think it’s any cheaper, is probably heavier and definitely more fiddly.
If the 1150 is too pricey for you new, I have a few part-used ones I’ve amassed and could sell one of them.Posted 5 days ago
As above, they aren’t cheap, but they do seem to last ages compared to Shimano, so value-for-money-wise a good bet.Posted 5 days ago
As above, friend of mine has something like 4 or 5 years on an xg1150. That’s not been low mileage or light/easy use, but he has kept on top of changing the chains. Got up to four or five changed early and then cycled back through.Posted 5 days ago
What’s the hub? Long term, might be cheaper to switch freehub body and run Shimano/Sunrace.Posted 5 days ago
@ Onzadog It’s a dt Swiss 350 hub,was think about changing the free hub, but I think I may just stay with the xd driver,
Swanny853 if you have one that would take a new chain I could well be interested too.
Thanks for the info tooPosted 4 days ago
I’ve got two new-in-box 11speed XG 1150’s going spare if anyone is interested in a sensible offer for both / either
Was going to upgrade an old bike; but bought a new one with 12 speed instead 😀Posted 4 days ago
