    SRAM X-Glide shifting quality

    Anyone else find the shifting quality with X Glide rings and cassette, when shifting gears 1 gear at a time, to be kind of clunky and having an excessive disengagement period (the split second where your cranks lose resistance)? When I shift multiple gears at a time, it feels very smooth with minimal disengagement time, but just clicking through 1 gear, trying to find the ideal gear for a specific grade and my power output, I find myself letting off the gas when I shift, since I'm expecting the "falling" feel in my cranks, which I absolutely hate (throws me off balance and/or I lose my footing on my pedal). For the record, I'm running i9 hubs with full XX except FD (XO) and PC-1091R chain on a Superfly 100.

    It appears that my issues were caused by my XX rear derailleur.

    Looked up mtbr reviews of it and I was shocked to see so many unhappy with it. Seeing those reviews earlier would've helped confirm the issue a lot sooner.
