    I have an XO T2 on my Jet RDO and it works perfectly. In fact I am running mine 1X with a MRP 28T front (Sram XO crank) and 11/34 XT 10Sp cassette with no chain guide and it works great.

    Yeah its an intriguing system, i worry though, 11 gears how many times will the hanger need to be straightened per year?

    Yeah I will order with the 30t chainring looks like is the best for high and long distance hills the 28t will be too small for flats in marathon races

    Can I ask users what they think of the chainset? I'm considering one for use with a 1X10 Shimano set up, they seem like amazing value all things considered. The only thing holding me back is using SRAM with Shimano from a aesthetic/continuity point of view. Its either this or wait a bit for the new rings coming out from the different manufacturers and mount on a regular pair of cranks.

    I'm running their 30T 104 BCD ring on XT cranks, and I love it so far. Very quiet and no chain drops so far, including a couple of crashes.

    Not at the moment. I'll try to remember to snap some pics when I get home.

    Here is a pic and intro for the Wolf Tooth ring: First Look: Wolf Tooth Components Drop-Stop chainring | Bike198

    Only have about 20-30 off road miles on it so far, but loving it. No chain drops at all.

    I'm already setup with the full XX1 drivetrain, but it's interesting to see all the manufacturers that are announcing and producing their own version of the XX1 style/ narrow-wide chainrings:

    Sram XX1 Aftermarket Chain Rings

    Why Do We Need or Want Aftermarket XX1 Chain Rings?

    Thanks! I updated the article, but I can't find any information about the Goldtec offerings. Do you have a link?

    Sorry no, the Goldtec one is just forum chatter at the moment. But people have been in contact with them and they are imminent AFAIK. Drop them a mail I believe they are very good with comms.

    Sram's New XX1 Group

    ^
    Yes, you can but Sram isn't selling the spider.

    I was going to call my LBS and tell them I bent my XX1 spider and to order a replacement. Do you think they would supply one?

    My ďnew to meĒ aluminum Jet 9 is currently equipped with a standard X9 2x10 set-up with the only exception being an XO rear shifter. This is my first 29er, as well as, my first 2X10 group. The shifting is somewhat inconsistent and loud. Overall it seems rather sluggish compared to my old XT 26er.

    Iím looking for an upgrade in shifting action and noise reduction. My LBS guy recommends the XX1 package. Iíve read most every article available but havenít found much specific to the aluminum Jet 9. Also, Q-factor is a choice that I need to make if I decide on this group set.

    Anyone running XX1 group on an aluminum Jet 9? If so, Iíd be interested to know about your experience with it. At 46 Iím mostly into the fitness associated with XC riding. My local trails are fairly easy. Iím doing about 10 miles in just under an hour and ride about 60 miles per week.

    Thanks,

    If you really like your crankset or don't want to shell out for an XX1, this is always an option
