The new X9 is solid and can be had for less $100. The X0 is a little lighter, maybe 25 gr, but you pay $200+ for it
There is one saving grace for the X0, it uses standard center mount jocky wheels. This makes an easy upgrade to Al if you so desire. Those plastic ones wear kind of fast and they seem to attrack dirt like a magnet

Thanks for the info. Do you think there is any BIG difference btw x9 and x7?? I can get a really good price on the x7 or spend a lil more to get x9. Let me know wut you think.
X.7's are good, but I think the X.9's are better...not by a whole lot and unless you really know what each one feels like you'll be happy w/the X.7.
FWIW- If you're runnin' two rings up ft - I'd get a mid-cage and I think they offer X.7's and X.9's in mid-cage. Mid-cages will shift a lil quicker and keep a lil more tension on yer chain so you don't get as much chain slap or be as quick to drop it. Mmmmm...mid-cage
