I am old school and currently have the 9 speed rear setup. I am looking into a 1x11 setup. In the past I looked for upper end components (XTR, XO, XX, etc). These day I am less competitive and wonder if I should be more conservative with my parts selection. I am looking into SRAM components and initially started with XO1 components (Cranks, derailluers, cassettes, shifters, etc.). I found that the price to be unreasonably high. I did another search and found components for the GX line for less than 1/2 the price. But the dilemma is that I am use to investing in upper end components and have that preference. Honestly I can afford to go the expensive route but thought I would post to see if anyone has any advice on the topic. XO1 or GX??? Will I be disappointed either way?
Thank you for input. I find mountain bikers to be the nicest and most helpful people.
