Buddy was given an old Cannondale Badboy that is around 2001-2005. TruVtiv triple cranks, 7-speed SRAM X7 trigger shifters, SRAM 5.0 RD, WITH 9-speed cassette. If you are paying attention, 7-speed shifters AND 9-speed cassette. Something was changed. What we don't know is if the RD is 9-speed to match the cassette, or 7-speed to match the shifters. Any way to tell? And the chain?

Pics? SRAM X series parts were never 7 speed, the only 7 speed SRAM was ever really involved with (for MTB), was back in the early Grip Shift days, trigger shifters were 8+ speed.

If you have access to the bike, look at the parts it has, and google image search them to find out exactly what you have, as they are very easy to differentiate when you have them/have photos of them, but pretty much impossible without seeing them somehow.

SRAM X7 shifters with what looks like 7 Speed display window.
SRAM 5.0 derailleur. Don't know what the chain is.
