    2007 SRAM versus now.


    I have a 2007 Sram X9 1x9 drivetrain. Would upgrading to a 2015 model x9 shifter offer any benefit or smoother operation than what i currently have.

    A 10 speed shifter will not work with your 9 speed drive train. You could upgrade to 10 speed but the only advantage would be a 36t cassette, or tighter jumps between gears. If you don't need the gear and don't notice the jumps it would be pointless.

    Currently running a 1x9 myself, I guess I get to save money because I live in a flat area.

    oh, my fault. I should have worded the post much better. Will the latest 9 speed SRAM x9 shifter (whatever production year that is) make a difference in performance?

    They feel a bit more crisp but, IMO, they don't shift any better.

    thanks. that's what I wanted to know. right now, it is very clunky feeling high to low or low to high. even a little more crisp of a shift has to be better than the junk it feels like now.

    When is the last time you revamped your drivetrain? New cassette, chain, chainring, cables, housing, etc? Doing any one of those things can make your shifting feel brand new again

    Problem is that it felt like this from the beginning as a brand new bike when I purchased it. The only parts that haven't been changed have been the shifters and rear derailleur.

    It probably depends on riding style, and how often on the same bike.
    I'm more of a roadie, plus I have both a hard tail and suspension. So the wear is spread out over
    several different bikes. My suspension rig still has the same stuff on it since 05 or 06
