Trail rider and racer
That was one thing I feared the most with going to SRAM, that I would not be able to do the regular shift and brake at the same time, but you can, it just takes some adjustment in technique. It may mean taking your finger off the lever for a ever so slight moment, but thus far I have never had issues regarding this.divve said:Prefer XTR myself. Much easier to brake and shift concurrently. I can't imagine having to miss that. Both manufacturers have very nice stuff however.
Agreed on both having nice stuff. Give me a bike with XO and I am happy, give me a bike of XTR and I'm still smiling!
