07 rear der.-> X0 and X9 changes??
Anyone know of any changes to the X0 and X9 rear der? I read the SRAM media 06 event posting on MTBR stating the X9 is improved to have some slightly better materials to match 06 X0 levels. What is X0 getting? I've got a pretty old X9 rear that needs replacing soon. When will 07 come around? Should I wait? X0 or X9? Thanks.
New SRAM X-9 Rear Derailleur The new X-9 utilizes the same technology as last year’s X-0 shifter and derailleur. Materials are also up to last year’s high X-0 standards, meaning weight is down and shift performance is better.
Available in three cage lengths Long, Medium and Short
New polished look.
1:1 actuation ratio and Direct Route Technology means lighter effort shifts.
Weight: 230 / 227 / 212 grams for rear derailleur depending on cage length
160 grams front derailleur
MSRP: X-9 rear derailleur: $99
X-9 front derailleur: $48
Shifters: $29 to $128 depending on model
I imagine that if they are pretty much making the X.9 to the standards of the X.0.. that the X.0 will be better now to justify the price difference...
