    SRAM XX1/X01 X-HORIZON Rear Derailleur questions

    Two questions about the SRAM XX1/X01 X-HORIZON Rear Derailleur:

    1) How many gears can you shift at a time?

    2) Can you ride with the clutch mechanism disengaged?

    I'm particularly interested in the answer to question 1; because I like to use a grip shifter so I can grab/dump a lot of gears at once. I've heard that SRAM's clutch derailleurs limit you to one gear at a time.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    1) With the grip shift you can rip thru all the gears at once if you want. With the trigger you can up shift 4 at once, but down shift 1 at a time.

    2) Yes, but it is not as simple to do at the Shimano stuff. You have to open it up.

    I much prefer the Shimano trigger shifters because you can go down 2 smaller cogs with one push. You also get instant release, plus dual release, and the ergonomics feel a lot better to me.

    I recently got a new bike with XX1 trigger, and I want to switch to the grip shifter. They are very expensive, though, and I've heard of some reliability issues with the XX1 grip shifters.
