    Not looking, lalalala...
    I was just looking at some discounted 10 speed hubs to go with my nice new(ish) 10 speed XT set up.

    Hubs will be fine with 11spd Shimano. I've just got myself a cheap XTR 10 spd full kit.... Hey ho.

    I think I just started drooling, time to start saving I think.

    The cassette seems expensive. XTR 11 speed was cheaper than XTR 10 speed.

    Yes, you're right. I got confused because my CX bike has disc hubs that will take a road 11 speed so I have to use a spacer for my 10 speed. So Shimano will have 2 different 11 speed standards for freehubs.

    If you need 40/42 teeth on the back then get your sparrow legs on an ebike.
    I love horses, best of all the animals. I love horses, they're my friends.

    Why? I don't need a 42 but would run one and then a bigger chainring. Give myself a bigger spread whilst still having the advantages of 1x

    No it wasn't.

    £170 retail

    £190 retail

    Similar increase to XT.

    Njee, you'll notice I said 'was'. M980 cassettes were £200 when M9000 lauched. And XT cassettes have gone by about 60% in price

    cassette is quite heavy at 411g

    £180 on release, I never saw them go above that.

    Hardly a surprise, 85g heavier than SRAM GX and £40 cheaper. I'd still look to do a hybrid group - SRAM cassette, Shimano shifters and mech. Extra range of SRAM, lighter weight, but the ergonomics and reliability of Shimano.

    I'm increasingly thinking that I'm going to run my current cassette and chain into the ground and make the switch one way or another. Seeing as I need to replace my front shifter soon anyway, price wise it would only be the cost of a rear mech if I went full XT. And seeing as the price of an XT cassette is cheaper than the price of my current cassette plus expander its looks like it would be about £25-£50 more expensive. Less if my current stuff lasts long enough for it to be discounted at CRC!
  • njee20njee20 Posts: 9,613
    It'll be discounted at CRC (and others) as soon as it's available, so if you can eek it out until June you're sorted.

    E-thirteen have gone wider ratio again with a 9-42 cassette. needs an xd driver though

    An 11t cog is bad enough. 9 will be shite - like the Hope one.
  • njee20njee20 Posts: 9,613
    The 10 on a SRAM feels noticeably rougher, I agree that a 9 will be horrible.
  • robertpbrobertpb Posts: 1,866
    9t certainly not a wet leaves and censored cog.
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"
