    Thanks for posting that.

    That looks pretty cool. The X is not as obnoxious as on the current model.

    As an aside, because I know you're such an On-One fan, Crisillo: I'm in the process of gathering parts to build up my first geared bike in a long time [456]. I'm leaning towards X.9, but it's good to see what the other options are. I'm purposely holding off on the fork and derailleurs/shifters until I have everything else ready to go, since those are the things that will go on sale when the new models come out. I have a feeling that I'll be tempted by the latest, though.

    Yes looks better than the current model. X.0 mid cage still a better looking RD IMO.

    Looks-wise, the current X.0 never did a whole lot for me, but damn, next year's is looking pretty hot:



    I'm sure the X.0 and the new XTR Shadow will cost almost as much as my frame. They'll be nice to drool over on others' bikes, though.

    nice... a "that green" 456 from what I can see on the pics...very nice yeah one of these RDs would fit the 456's purpose really well ... I have a RVL on my 'bred and fits awesome... though I think a bigger fork on the 456 would be awesome too (PIke, Z1, etc)

    I like the look of the xtr shadow mech, no sram for me thanks.

    Only thing is, i can't seem to destroy my old xtr mech- it's on its fifth set of jockey wheels at the moment. There's always Ebay i s'pose.

    Wow that looks nice Sorry but I missed the benifits of these new derailleurs? Besides that it does not stick out as far.

    I have a 2002 med cage and it survived a bike crash and stripped out the threads on the frame ... poor frame....

    I think it looks very nifty. Too bad there is no low-normal version, however

    I wonder how much it'll cost?

    I like the more direct cable routing. I've never been a fan of that big, twig and vine catching loop. As someone who has owned two horst link bikes though, the more important improvement to me is "there is now no chance for the derailleur to swing up and whack the chainstay as in other versions." This chainstay smacking has beat my chainstays mercilessly on drops and in rock gardens. I eventually switched one bike to SRAM and the other has a piece of rubber from an old grip zip tied around the offending part of the derailleur to deaden the clank down to an acceptable thud.

    I think I read somewhere that that X.0 will be a special anniversary model in addition to the standard model.

    i wonder how durable that's gonna be. seems like they are taking cues from sram, like the carbon fiber cage and more direct cable routing. i'm happy with my X.9, it's so perrrrfect.

    The cable directing system Sram uses is not their own original design exactly. Sachs used this system before them.

    well.. sachs was bought by sram (that's were the derailleurs came from), so it is theirs by acquisition.

    Low profile is a great idea but man that connection point looks weak, guess we will see. I recently switched to saint and it has already paid for itself with direct hits that would of killed a couple of hangers and probably a Sram der, wish Sram would come out with something similiar cause the Saint shifting doesn't compare to the Sram/gripshift setup I had before and on my other MB.

    i agree. my friends and i have broken probably 10 derailleurs in the last 8 months. and 3 broke their derailleur hangers. i love the way the saint hooks up, but i like my sram shifting (plus i don't exactly have the cash to get a saint setup). that shadow technology looks like a winner, if the mount isn't flimsy.
