I just picked up a new 2011 Trance x1...super stoked on the purchase, got a great deal from the LBS.
I was previously running the SLX crank/x-type BB on my old hardtail. The Trance comes with the Deore XT crank/press fit BB. It is my understanding that XT is "better" (higher in the Shimano line) than SLX. However, I was also under the impression that the x-type BBs were the way to go. Probably a question I should have asked at the LBS but I was so excited after my test ride that the question faded from the front of my brain.
Basically - what is the difference?
Thanks in advance!
