ok... basically i ordered a rockhopper comp disc. then i haggled for a swap from shimano to sram.
I have a MAJOR problem. i originally had them swap out the deore shifters and deore lx derailleur for x-7 shifters and x-7 rd, right?
well then i went back and decided to pay the difference to upgrade to x9's.
i took a look at the x9's (in the box, the rockhopper had to be ordered in later) and then went home.
then i went to the sram website. the x9's they had are IDENTICAL to the x-7's that i saw on sram.com.
i figured that they had last year's x9's, which became this year's x7's.
what i SHOULD be getting:
i'm like CRAP i paid 40 bucks extra just to get x7's.
what the heck should i do? should i make them order in this year's x9's? it'll cost the same... right?
i don't wanna be stuck with last year's x-9's next year. and i DO care. that's 40 bucks down the drain.
UPDATE: not even. jensonusa.com shows that this is the 05 x9 derailleur too. that means the x9 they're giving me is from 04 or even older.
difference between current x7 and x9:
lighter (because of more magnesium)
pulleys use cartridge bearings rather than sealed (can replace just the bearings rather than the entire pulley).
