Is there and difference between the X-GEN and the X-9 ? Just wondering why the X-GEN is $20 cheaper, I'm building a bike and not sure if the X-9 is better ?
SRAM doesn't list the Xgen on their site, so I'm guessing it's discontinued. I'm assuming their stuff is made in China like everything else these days, so as the dollar continues to slide newer stuff will cost more, in addtion to the clear-out -the-old-stock factor.
I've had an Xgen for two or three years, took a while to get it dialed in but it works very well.
