    XO vs X9: Worth The Price Difference?

    Even for older '05 new triggers and RD, there seems to be about a $60 difference. I'm thinking of switching from Shimano to SRAM. Is the difference from XO to X9 like the difference from XTR to XT? With XT vs. XTR, it's just a little bit more refined and a tad lighter.

    In short "yes" - your paring for different materials, slightly lighter parts and more refined shifting. Difference is massive but just depends on whether you want to spend the money or not.

    I love my XO stuff.
