    XP: 06 X9 More Durable than 05?

    I just broke my second 05 Sram X9 rd in 3 months. First was a slide off of a skinny and yesterday a stick jammed at 10 miles into a 18 mile out and back.

    Does anybody know if an 06 X9 is any more durable or for that matter an 07?

    The '07 X9 is a complete redesign.It looks now very much like the XO and probably SRAM worked out the bugs.The X9 rear derrailleurs seems to be problematic to some people if it is what you mean.Do a search.
    But that is only guesswork,to be honest I don't know.The stuff is just to new to have any usefull reviews.Ever thought about using a Shimano Saint derailleur?

    The 07' definitely seems beefier. I would go with that if you're getting a new one anyway.

    Me too, 2 X9's in the last month, Larry hooked me up with an '07 which definitely seems more solid.

    I'm ready to do this, too many der hanger issues for me, the new X9 der is probably fine but I'm still twisting hangers all the time too. I'm gonna try the Saint stuff when I have some wheels built for the RFX real soon, I hear the '07 der will be regular instead of low normal also.

    They are pretty expensive little hangers ($2,095), but they come with a really cool Highline attached for free!
