    Is x7 to xo rd a worthy upgrade?

    Recently switched my shifters from x5 to xo and wondering if x7 to x0 rd for 55.00 is a worthy upgrade or if i should just spend the mony on my zee brake cables.

    The main change will be the shifters....which you've already done. You might get a 5% difference in feel with a stiffer RD, but thats hard to detect quite frankly.
    A decent set of outer and inner cables will do much more too.

    Re: Is x7 to xo rd a worthy upgrade?

    I am using jagwire ripcord and jagwire housings. So would white cables for my zee or the xo rd be a better purchase? My zees need to be bled and hoses cut so was going to buy new hoses in the proper color for my bike.
