alright.. so im currently rockin a deore lx front, a deore rear, and deore shift/brake combo levers. the rear deore just isnt cutting it for me, and i want something a smoother. im looking at either an XT level rear or moving to SRAM. here's my question:
if i get a sram rear mech.. would i have to swap out the rest of the system for sram parts as well since its 1:1 ratio?
would it me better or more cost effective to just get an XT mech?
im just weighing my options here and was wondering if it would be worth it to move to sram. i dont want to start a huge sram vs. shimano debate so try and stay away from that if you would please.
