Shimano Sram Comparable Products
Could someone outline to me which Shimano product competes directly with which Sram product the ideal answer would be something like
Whatever, there just numbers and letters to me...
actually if you could also arange them from most expensive to cheapest that would be much appreciated.

I'm not sure about the Deore/Altus pair, but stick XT/X9 in the list between XTR/X0 and LX/X7 and you have the products in decending order of price. Dunno if that helps at all.

And. . . That's it. SRAM doesn't make an Altus or Tourney grade component. . .yet. I've heard that next year SRAM is going to come out with an XO level front derailleur, as well as a X5 level hydraulic brake called the Juicy 3. Also, there is a newer Juicy Ultimate coming out next year to replace the Juicy Carbons I think. I also realize that you can mix and match between component groups, and that some people will dispute what I have listed, but it should give you a general idea of how they stack up. As far as prices of everything, well, that depends on where you go. I can tell you that as you go up in component level, you go up in price. Also, SRAM makes no wheels, so you'd just have to use your same Chris King wheels for any SRAM component group.
It's only a super-awesome website for a super-awesome store. Just click it. I dare you.
