In December I put a SRAM X.9 rear derailleur and SRAM Halfpipe 9 speed shifter on one of my bikes.
Till now everything works just fine that I just got the same combo for one of my other rigs. The
only thing that was hard to get use to was the shifting is backwards and it took a long time to fine
tune it in. More time then it ever takes me and I have 4 SRAM setups. Well when my last 2 SHIMANO
rear derailleurs and one in the parts box go I'll be a full SRAM man. You ever hear of human error
like not checking and making sure set screws are tight and grips are secure.

Eehh? Why don't you wait till you're straight and post that again. Maybe somebody will make sense of
it then. BTW if you're looking for who said it didn't it was probably me, 'cause I never said that.

I've gone almost all SRAM on my Schwinn geared bike, and love it. (front derr's all that's left)
Move over Shimano, there's a good kid in town...

Paladin go to www.Icycles..com SRAM front derailleurs are so cheap you shouldn't wait. SRAM
5.0,7.0,and 9.0 are all there and could be in you hand in just 3 days. They are so easy to install
and tune. And they don't mess with the paint job.

Thanks, I'll take a look. My xt front derr never worked right. Which is why I learned to climb in
the middle ring all the time.

Me too. Then when I was changing frames I found that the wires from one of the cable outers had
pulled through the ferrule. Replaced the piece of cable and, Robert's your father's brother,
shifting worked again.
