Good job SRAM, I just got my hands on some XX parts, the 11-36 cassette is bang on the 208gr claimed weight and the rear derailleur is 1gr lighter than claimed at 180gr. I only got the rear shifter, 80gr without the pre-installed cable and no bar clamp, the clamp is 10gr...

MSRP for a single shifter is 140$ US...

3x10? 22x36... with that gearing, walking, slowly, would be much faster. ;) No I was already using a 2x9 setup and I'll never go back to three rings and I'm even going one step further and go 1x10. With the bigger spread with the 11-36 cassette, it's viable for me. If I dont like it, I'll go back with my 29/42 rings...

Still laughing about this one.

I do live in CO and tried a 2x9 with a 29/42 with an 11-32 and it was a no go. Worked great for a weekend over in Fruita and 18rd but pretty much worthless for any high alpine climbs.

I really want to pull the trigger on this stuff but will wait for a buddy to buy it, ride it and he might realize that this was not a good purchase and then buy it off of him for a whole lot less then the crazy prices they are asking for. He will be getting the 26/39 combo for crankset.

Nice compact cage..









Shifting is dead on, front and back
