I am considering the switch and I need some input from you guys. I rode an Ellsworth with the X.0 rear derailer and shifter. I am riding an NRS composite with xtr rear and xtr shifters with race face cranks and rings and xt cogs. I liked the snappy precise feel of the shifts but the price is pretty steep for me. I ride lots of tight singletrack with lots of shifting and the constant adjustments with xtr are driving me crazy. Missing a shift where I ride can often be the difference between making a section or walking it. I start a ride with it shifting ok and after 10 miles it is ghost shifting and skipping. It worked well in the past but I think it is just getting old.
I am considering going with the X.0 rear and using an x.9 shifter because i like the fact that the X.0 is forged instead of cast. I prefer the aluminum cage over the carbon just for durability. Given my current setup are there any forseeable issues? How happy are you guys with SRAM and have any NRS owners run it with sucess? Any input is greatly appreciated.
