    Rear Derauilleurs Freezing?
    Anyone had any probs with their RD springs icing up in the winter? I heard that a few were having probs with SRAM's spring.

    I have a Sram X7 on my pugs and have never had any problems. My winter ride times are anywhere between 1 and 3 hours, a few longer ones but no major epics. Many rides were in the single digit and below temperature catagory.

    My x-9 would be a lil gummy at 1st, but after a couple of run thru on the gears it would be ok. This was commuting back and forth to work in single digit and in the teens sometimes.

    Sounds like a few have had probs with thee upper pulley on 2007/2008 X9s but not X.0 or Shimano.

    I have a cheap X.0 I am going to use on my Fatback, but I also installed an XT shadow on my trailbike this spring and love it so I was in a bit of a quandary. Thanks for the responses.

    I once bought a bottle of Landy's XO for $35 at Gold Rush Liquor. At that price I regret not buying all that were on the shelf. Naturally, they were gone the next day.
