    Freakin' Sweet

    More like sh*t. This weekend I finally took out my bike and was disapppointed to find most of my rear drivetrain needs to be replaced. I am stuck with all of one gear. If I shift to anything else it skips like a scratched CD in a crappy old CD player from 1990. (Did they even have CD players then...) Anyways, I need to replace whatever the stock sh*t is on my haro.

    Money is not an issue. But i'm not looking for top-of-the-line products.

    I want the opinions of those I know. Maelstrom, if you still post here your opinion would be appreciated.

    Deore is a good level of componentry, its cheap, and strong, but not very light, this is the minimum benchmark i would go with shimano.

    But many people these days are going SRAM, so you might want to look into them.

    Apparently Shimano LX and SRAM X7 is best for the money or so ive been told.

    A lot of people are using road rear derrailuers, and I think I'll do the same after I get back from Florida next month...

    The Shimano 105 is like the lowest end, but it's probably alright. Kona has an Ultegra, I think.

    I guess they have shorter cages so they shift better and dont bounce the chain around so much.

    I am thinking the SRAM X.9 derailleur/trigger combo. Any thoughts on that?

    Theyre very good, the shifterand derailler are made of metal instead of plastic so durability is very good, it has SRAMS slick shifting, and is lighter than X7 i think.

    105 is not lowest end.

    For Shimano road componentry it goes:

    Sora
    Tiagra
    105
    Ultegra
    Dura Ace

    Go for it! Get the med. cage derailluer because it puts more tension on the chain, resulting in less chainslap and better shifting.

    X.9 = durable, good shifting
    I have conveted all my bikes to x.9 except my new dh rig will have XO. I do use the grip shift but the triggers, from what I have seen and heard, work very well also.

    are you sure you dont want to try to fix what you have first... even if you replace it you can have it as back up or dump it for a few bucks.. might be something simple..

    I leave for two days and i have to search for my post. It got knocked down by stupid posts BTW.

    harov3: All stock '04 X3, except the following:

    Brakes: Hayes Mags (The HFX-9 were a pain in the @$$)
    Chainguide/Bashguard: Evil DRS
    Going to replace the derailler hanger and possible the derailler itself and the shifter. Look below

    I'm going to first replace my bent derailler hanger, see how the shifting is then. If it's not smooth i'm going to replace the derailler itself, the shifter and maybe the freewheel. Because the teeth are really mangled from riding with the bent hanger.

    Why didn't you board up the frame too? Make it look like a DHR maybe.
    What a joke!
