    New GX cassettes shipping

    Anybody able to get their hands on a XG-1150 or XG-1175 yet? I can't find out as much info on pricing and the like for the XG-1175 either.

    Trying to decide between XT and GX gear. The cassettes are both on the heavy side but I have shimano hubs so the expense and time to get a hub or wheel with a xd driver may not work.

    The XD freehub and overall cassette cost are going to push anybody on a tight budget over towards XT. If you're running 2x10/2x11 then I'd say XT without a doubt. To me the justification of the cheaper/heavier 10-42T cassettes is being able to run 1x, and getting that extra 10% of gear range on the top making a smalelr chainring reasonable... unless that specifically applies, just plan around shimano (or get older 10spd XT and run a big cog conversion on it if that can be ran cheaper with existing equipment).

    I am currently on a Sram 10 speed 11-42, but my wolftooth is chewed up and I don't have a 16T cog so the jump in gears is annoying.

    I want SRAM so I can run a smaller chainring for the steeps but yeah, adding the cost of a hub and a wheel build sucks.

    The GX cassette(XG-1150) is only $140 bucks as well, so same price range as XT, and a couple grams lighter.

    evanscycles.com has it for $88 at the moment. I haven't seen it lower than that yet.

    No sense in going to the SRAM cassette and changing over the XD driver unless you want a lighter 42T cassette (like the X01). If you have a Shimano free hub, want a 42 then I would go XT.
