We're currently driving a SRAM 11-32 with a SRAM PG-1070 chain, and need to replace the cassette (bent tooth, +3000 miles). Current thought is to change to a Shimano XT M771 11-32 cassette. Existing chain shows surprisingly little wear, but might as well replace it and start with a fresh drivetrain.
If we opt for the XT cassette, would Shimano's directional "super narrow" 10-speed chain provide better compatability/shifting than the SRAM (or any other) chain for our tandem? In case it matters, we have an Ultegra RD and SL-K cranks.
I generally like the idea of running an integrated system, but using "super narrow" chain and "tandem" in the same sentence seems inherently suspect. Our team puts high value on reliability. Cheers.
