    X.0 vs. X.9 Rear Shifter

    Is it worth paying a little bit extra to get the X.0 over the X.9? Both have zero loss travel. I'm upgrading from X.7 and it will be shifting an X.0 RD. I do like the bling factor of the X.0 and would love a red one to match my cassette and RD but not sure its worth the extra cash.
    If you ever see a turtle on a telephone pole, remember he had help getting there. Is there anything beer can't do?

    I have owned both x7 and x9, noticed no differences between those two. I have ridden others' bikes equipped with x0 shifters and the feel is definitely better. Definitely more of a quicker click with the x0's, it also shifts with a shorter lever throw.

    Do it!!! then get the shifter upgrade. You can then have spares, see very logical.

    Functionally they're both the same. Whether you want to pay more for the bling or not is up to you.

    Twist? Trigger? What shifter are you asking a question about? I assume trigger.

    I am amazed anyone gave advice without asking this question first.

    Sorry, didn't think about that. Trigger shifters.

    What's the shifter upgrade you are talking about? X.7 to X.0? I didn't clarify I guess but I already have an X.0 RD powered by X.7 triggers. I'm wanting to get X.9 or X.0 triggers as an upgrade.
