Starting to feel a lot like xmas

Seriously it isn't. But still some new toys to install on my bike have. Even got a FREEEEEBIE!!! Spare deraileur x.9 I didn't order and a free upgrade to x.9 on my existing order.

Maybe now my shifting will be fixed by replacing all the broken parts I have worn through haha.

Mounted on the bike. Very smooth so far, but I already knew that. My concern is durability. I have done many short term tests and by far and away prefer the shifting of sram to shimano...will it last...I hope so

I have found the SRAM to hold up to alot of abuse and still not miss a shift. All our bikes have been switched over. Enjoy

Initial impressions are incredible. Totally different feel to shimano and so much crisper initially. I won't give a real review till I drag it up and then down a mountain though, thats the real test.

That is why you are not as good as you would like to be... you are supposed to ride your bike not drag it.

Hey Maelstrom would you tell Brown Santa to drop some bike junk off at my place too??? I haven't bought bike parts in so long that I've forgotten the rush of shiny parts.
