    Dram sram x.5 vs shimano xt compatability & durabulity

    I am looking at a mountain that comes with the following components and I have several questions.


    1) I am worry about the sram due to parts availability. It is much easier to find shimano parts.

    2) what shimano parts are compatible with sram x5 ( Cassette, chain, etc )

    3) My understanding is that I will need to change the shifters, front and Front and rear Derailleur to change to shimano.

    4) which is a better set up I am looking at two 29 one shimano the other sram
