    Oooh that's an interesting idea..

    I've tried the road version and it's very good once you get used to it. It will be interesting to hear how it works on the trail as I can imagine it might be tricky to get the shift you want when bouncing down the trail as compared to tarmac. That said it may well be a non issue...

    What sort of level of kit is that, X9, X.0 or..?

    Yeah agree, Ive had a ride some time ago on the road group and I was also impressed by ut comparing to DA and RC, Im not sure where this is aimed!

    There's supposedly the new XX so maybe thats the new top MTB group, the DT maybe more XC orientated, just my assumptions I may be off base!

    Then there is the new crank for AM/FR which is supposed to change the whole front shifting so more questions!

    How are these shifters different than anything else?

    What frame is that Herbold has in the "Behind the magic curtain" video? Is that really a forked connection to the headset?

    There is one shifter lever. You tap the lever lightly to go to a smaller cog/chainring. Push lever further to go to a larger cog/chainring. This is essentially SRAM's road shifter in a MTB form factor.

    Did we say different

    Double tap from my memeory on the road group correct me if Im wrong guys mems not so good, push to first engagement shifts down, [or is that up lol] push to second last engagment point shifts up [ or is that down ?]

    Ahh theres only one shift lever, looks a little more compact!

    I fear the second 'X' means SRAM now thinks 10 rear cogs are a good idea .

    It is a Scott frame (gambler maybe)....the headtube is actually split at the front with pinchbolts. The pinchbolts allow an internal eccentric/angle bored sleeve to be rotated to give varying head tube angles...

    S h i t e I hope not!, I'll be buying all the 990 9spds I can if thats the case! 11/32ss should be cheap since Im the only one running em

    We need less not more!

    I thought it might have something to do with the new HS crank!

    One thng I hate is more for the sake of more, so Im hoping its not so, keep that stuff on road bikes, doing the dishes is a nightmare enough as it is

    Second DP its a Scott G, I thought he rode an RFX when stateside and Scott in Europe, maybe testing the HS in Euopre or Candan where there's no patent infringements!

    Cool, that's like my Hone dual-control levers, although I find it's more natural to push the levers than do the gear change in the other direction with the paddle-lever, but it can go "both ways".
