    sram x.0/x.7 compatibility?

    I've got a couple different bikes I'm outfitting and have what seems like a stupid question, but here it is.

    Bike 1 - I want to set up with a sram x.0 twist shifter and a x.7 rear derailleur

    bike 2 - I want to set up with a x.7 trigger shifter and a x.0 rear der.

    Any compatibility issues there?

    i think you should be fine. As long as the shifter/derailleur are both "ESP" shifters, then there is nothing to worry about.

    I believe SRAM's "rocket" line of grip shifters are only compatible with Shimano (any 2:1) rear derailleurs, but i dont think thats an issue with x-0 grip shifts.

    Please someone correct me if i am wrong.

    should be fine I do believe X.7 and up are all ESP (1:1 ratio), it should work fine, X.7, X.9 , and X.0 are all 1:1 and that should work

    I know that the rocket line is a shimano compatible, so yeah you're right on that. I was just concerned there might be an issue with moving up a notch in the same componentry. Thanks fellas!

    Yes they are compatible. All X-series SRAM stuff are on 1:1 actuation ratio.

    The "Rocket" shifters are not labeled as X.7 or X-anything. Rocket, Attack and Centera Shifters are labeled "Shimano Compatible".

    Finally, SRAM does not make 2:1 (Shimano Compatible) derailleurs.
