    Trim feature gone, no mention of weight, twice the price of 9-speed X0, color me unimpressed.

    No kidding! For that pricepoint, they should come with ceramic bearings AND Gore cables. $450 to convert a triggered bike and a new build. Just for shifters! Staying 9spd just became more palatable decision. One of the pros for going gripshift was the cheaper price. 10spd killed that...

    The price is too high, but if they don't bring out the X9 cheaper, I will likely use the X0 on my next bike. I have said a few times, but I have issues with my thumbs, so thumb shifters suck after about 40 minutes for me and $225 for the X0 is still less than it would cost me to downgrade a 10spd new bike to 9 spd to run my current X0s. Hoping for a lower price than MSRP at LBSs and online!
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    You don't need the trim feature with a 2x front der.

    Pay to play, if the XX grip shifter is lighter then the trigger options, faster shifting and has an actual carbon body then it's not that bad IMO, the wait has been so long I think a lot of those people waiting will have no problem paying whatever sram is asking. I am very excited myself about these shifters. Thank you Tree Fort for providing the details. Throw those on a scale for us now

    Seams like they left out all the stuff that made people fall in love with twisties. Cheap, simple, light (maybe), and trimable front.

    I'm sure the price will come down over a couple seasons and they release an X7 model. I just hope they make an Attack model again for 10 speed Shimano at some point...

    I am sure there will be a pricing war online for these assuming the inventory is there from Sram. If the list is 300 perhaps 250 could be found online with a coupon code from the major players online or ebay etc.

    Agreed. [sigh] I especially dislike the removal of the trim feature.

    Are they, Sram, trying to make these things suck? The only argument I can come up with for loosing the FD trim feature is they don't want people buying them.

    It took them 2 years to redesign one tiny part, with such a minor change, I probably would have had an intern do it rather than waste an engineer's time, and instead they ruin the functionality of the front shifter, which didn't need any changes in the first place.

    You really have to wonder what people think sometimes. Sram, hello? Making your products worse for the sake of changing them doesn't make me want to ride Shimano less.

    Only if your idea of perfect is spending twice as much as the 1x9 version

    absolutely need trim for rough downhills. I run a bashguard and synching the derr up tight creates a on the fly chain guide.
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    Specialized sucks dong

    Just saw the youtube video for the new SRAM Red "YAW" FD, so that kind of explains the "no trim" deal with the front shifter. Maybe SRAM has some other mtb goodies up their sleeve that we just don't know about yet? Anyway, we'll just have to wait and see...

    Yeah, it's similar to the new Red FD. Hopefully it wont need constant tinkering to maintain proper adjustment.

    Also, for those crying about no micro adjustment in the shifter, I'm sure you could still run a standard 9 speed FD and front grip shift and buy the 10speed rear stuff separately. If you need the micro adjust that bad, then your stuff probably isn't setup properly in the first place so the imperfectness of the mix and match shouldn't matter to you. BTW, an FD isn't a chainguide, if you need one that bad put a proper one on...

    Maybe that's why Sram redesigned the FD the way they did, to force people to take some accountability with their setups and maintenance and use their equipment properly. Not just slap it on there, take up the slack in the cable and call it good. Just a thought...

    Like the grips. Like the flare of the lock collar on the ends of the grips.

    Running 1x10 for the last year has me reconsidering GS. Would be nice to just twist 5 or 6 gears rather than click after click.

    Any word on whether these will be available as rear only ?

    Probably not, since they're usually sold as a set.
