    Shadow vs. XO...?

    Hi! Heres the story:

    I bought the Sram Attack grip shifts because I was curious on trying them (been always on rapid fire).

    I'm using them with a XTR rear der. rapid rise, and I notice than the upshift is great! But the down shift (smaller rings) are just not .... perfect. I suspect that the shifter work better with a "normal" rise der...

    What do you guys think? My transmission (chain and cassette) may be a bit worn also...

    Confirming that, what is the most logical/better thing to do: Get the new XTR Shadow normal rise and keep the light (166gr) Attacks, or the XO grip shifts and der?

    Any luck with this? I was looking to do the Attack shifter grippy w/ XTR, non rapid rise.

    Yeap! Bought the shadow gs and the shifting improoved just as I suspected. Cool!

    Maybe the old M960 was a bit tired... Or maybe the cassette... But now is OK! Also changed cassette and chain...
