    X.O shifter users - any doubts of durability thus far?

    Hi all,

    Just curious if anyone has experienced any breakages where it felt below espectations. I'm not posting this out of any doubts I've heard about, just curious if there's any's got dirt.

    no breakages thus far, just a slightly bent clamp! i had a minor crash a few weeks ago, which oddly spun the steering right around, and the shifter clipped the toptube of the frame as it crossed around (!). cos it knocked the trigger shifter, it bent the clamp slightly. no big deal, but an important point is that it bent rather than snapped. i wonder, had it been the cast alloy X.9, whether it would have snapped instead.

    aside from that, shifting flawlessly, look bling, and i'm very happy.
