    Used XTR '08 vs New XT '11

    Hi Guys,

    Really need advice on this as I just starting on serious biking. Anyway straight to the issue, I recently got an offer of full (minus hubs) XTR '08 groupset offer for a price. I was quite excited until I saw the price for New XT groupset '11 is just a little more expensive (MYR 200.00 around USD 70). Now, this made me think a little bit more and now a bit hesitant on buying the full XTR stuff. Basically I need to know pros and cons and what to look for at used parts.

    Appreciate for all your help

    Yusoff

    I'd go new XT. Drivetrains are a wear item that are PIA when they need to be refreshed.

    Hmm...the chainrings and cassette on the xtr are pricey to replace. I would probably go new as well at this point.
