is it true that sram derailleurs do away with chainslap? i've heard that the springs are considerably more powerful than those on shimano's rear derailleurs.
not hearing rattling noises would be a real blessing.
yes, somewhere on this board there was a couple of videos posted from a supposedly non-biased source, of both a correctly setup Sram X.0 and Shimano XTR r. derailleurs on the same bike, and riding on the same terrain. Well, the camera view I remember was from the side, and showed considerably LESS chain-slap and bounce with the Sram setup. The Shimano was all over the place, looked horrible!!
anyway, I'm sure you can find it in a search somewhere around here....
indeed....i have had XTR and X.9 on the same bike, no more shitmano for me
