    M960 XTR RD vs SLX?

    How does the SLX compare to the old XTR? Is Shadow worth it above RapidRise?

    IMO, no.
    I think shadow only makes sense if you stay on the larger cogs, otherwise its main body just gets in the way as with any other derailleur. And that´s assuming you smash derailleurs often....not my case. But I´m just guessing, never tried one actually, so....
    Anyway, just for the RR thing, and the weight I would pick a 960 xtr over a SLX anytime.

    I'm planning on upgrading to 10sp when the XT shadow+ comes out in the next month or so
