    It's Sram!
    The X7 is probably aimed to compete with LX(in price) but it is probably closer to XT when it comes to performance.
    Between LX and XT I would say it sits

    The gear indicators seem to be a bit dodgy, and I've got problems with ocassionaly skipping gears under load. Got a tune up and all was well... but riding home last night, I had problems with it skipping up and down a rear cog. Not sure how related to X7 it is yet, as I just found a tight link on the chain, so maybe that was causing problems. Aside from this, it feels really nice though, and shifting is far far slicker than the Deore junk I had on previously.

    I just installed an x.7 shifter/derailleur/brake lever set. It's a LOT better than the Shimano stuff, but I wish I'd gotten the x.9 with it's pully system and straighter cable line.

    Thinking of chaging to a set of X7 too.
    Wonder if anyone using the X7 system with Shimano XT cassette and raceface Crankset? Which chain should I go for?

    thanks...

    You will be 100% fine with your raceface crank and shimano cassette.
    As for chains. I like Sram chains, but you could also get a wipperman.
    Just I don't like shimano chains as they don't have the 'quick link'.

    And depending on how many miles you have done. You may want to replace your cassette and chainrings if getting a new chain. Then it will all run alot smoother.
    If your chain is too far worn, then your cassette and chainrings are also going to be worn.
