    I'm curious to see what the "working man's" price will be...

    X.9 and x.7 are more the working man's price range in reality.

    x.0 used to be top of the line. Even the x.0 crankset is $459 for 2x10 IIRC. That's still a big chunk of change.

    I also hate the pricing of the cassettes is still going to be rather high compared to 10 spd.

    My LBS guy has said he's seen the XX1 cassettes come in with a broken (not worn) big cog.

    Yeah, I agree. Should be cheaper than XX1 though. The cassette is still going to be the big expense though.

    The pricing that is being spewed around is about $250 less than XX1.
    And that does not include the driver and/or rear wheel to use the cassette.
    Not a big savings if those numbers are correct.

    Eh, with 15% off at Universal Cycles it could bring it down to around $850. Less than a full XT drivetrain kit.

    The better question is whether or not they get the type 2 clutch issues resolved.

    The XX1 cranksets can be had now for $260-$300 Canadian. I would expect the X01 stuff to be slightly cheaper.

    I am planning to get a XX1 crankset and the rest X01 - that will allow me to use a 28T if I feel the need instead of being limited to the 30T that the X01 will offer. Plus the XX1 will be 200g lighter (claimed)

    $215 for a derailleur? "Working man" prices? uhhhhmmmmm.... no. Call me when I can get an x7/x9 group with a 28t front ring.

    Sram x01

    Price is attainable. About $700 for the RD, Cassette, shifter, chain and after market chainring.

    I would use my existing XO crank.

    Still seems like a lot of money for the 42 tooth cassette.

    I could run XTR 1x10 for less. It comes down to "do I need the gear range the 42 provides".

    I agree. I don't think I would ditch my existing 1x10 for this setup. But when it comes time to build my next bike... then maybe.

    If I just didn't go 2x10 a few months ago, this would be my next upgrade. I still might buy the X01 crank and run 1x10 instead because I'm still running a 9 speed crank.

    Save your money and get yourself a x11 type 104bcd chainring from wolf or raceface and bolt this to your existing crank. Happy days.
