    X0 or X9 twist shifters?

    anyone have a super secret link to a good deal on a set? And as I understand it, the x9 uses a different grip than the x0's?

    also, and most importantly!, why are certain models of the x0's that i'm finding have that carbon fiber finish and some don't? different years?

    Yes the gips differ on both. I prefer the x0s over the x9. I have two bikes with x0. The older one has the carbon fiber finish, the newer one is a plain black finish.

    Sorry, no idea on where to get a good deal on a set....

    This is about as good as you are going to do on those shifters: http://www.amazon.com/SRAM-Bicycle-T...8434389&sr=8-3

    I prefer the X0's. The X9's have a slippery feel to me.

    Did a build on a GT frame last year and went with the X9's...I'll never go back to triggers.

    Mechanically pretty much similar, but the x0's just feel better.
