Once I went SRAM, I've never been back to Shimano. X9 is the sweet spot for any new build of bike that I do. They are easy to install and set up, they shift solid, and take a beating.
I installed this on my wife's commuter bike - replaced road components to give her a flat bar and a wider range cassette. Shifting is great with a shimano 11-34 cassette. She has been using it for commuting and recreation for several years with no problems. Good, solid components.
these shifters are smooth - derailleur was easy to set up - and is easy to clean - i have sucked up sticks and everything still going
sram makes some good shifter's and deralers x-9 is great for the price, only at price point. THANKS
