    I need shifter/brake advice fast please

    Which would be the best set up and why

    El caminos and x9 or xt shifter/derrailers

    Juicy sevens and x9 or xt shifter/derailers

    saint dual control (push down on brake to shift) shifters and saint/xt derailers

    I will be doing 75%freeride and 25%DH racing

    Does anybody have any pros/cons towards the duel control set up?

    I want the most reliable, fast and crisp shifting, and strong, as well as modular braking.

    P.S. if anyone wants a set of elcaminos for like 200, or almost any other part (parted out a bike), hit me up.
    If it works...... do it!

    the SRAM 1:1 stuff shifts crisp and clean, and fast as well

    i prefer my setup which is X.9 derailleur, X.0 trigger, and Grimeca brakes

    so definately go SRAM, i love the way it operates and Juicy 7, those get rave reviews by the guys i know who have em

    X.9 is good stuff, I had the x.9 trigger, but broke it in a crash

    I am on x7s, love em. Though I plan on going to x0s in the near future, for no other reason then because I can, and I have an awesome new frame to put them on(Rocky Mountain TSC)

    I don't think you'll be dissapointed with the x.7 shifters. I use those and like them a lot.

    I have x7s now, but am disapointed w/ the shifting feel (they shift fine, but it seems like I need to push way to hard and far). I regularly get tuneups, so I know thats not the problem.

    I have deores on my DJ bike and love them. I think they are way better than my x7s, and to top it off, they haven't had a tune up in 2 years.
    If it works...... do it!
