SRAM Announces NX 1x11 Drivetrain
Nobody is selling anywhere near the list online. I can get an XT drivetrain for less that $400 usd from multiple retailers.

Giant USA Jump on the Direct Sales Bandwagon
Leaves me perplexed. Perhaps its to get the infrastructure dialed before ultimately cutting out the shop? I don't understand it either. There are plenty who need the shop, so I get that part. Plenty who don't so what appeal will paying thousands more have?

Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles Merge Confirmed
Honestly? That's the best thing I've ever heard of. I can always be bought with gummies.

@Momentus I'm talking about 1x11 specifically. If I include all of SRAM's offerings there are obviously many more.

They most likely want it that way. This is useful for oem spec because at a glance its not "oh X7... meh" its "ooooo 1x11"

I agree. I fell like this tries a little too hard to just get you to 1x11 no matter the weight and performance penalty...

Even though XT is Shimano's second from top, it is priced aggressively. Making it a strong value imo. The lack of 10t is non-issue to me, I plan on running a 34t when ultimately switch to 1x11, but that's neither here nor there. I like that Shimano doesn't mess around, they have two groups to SRAM's what 4? I can't even keep track.

It's a clever concept. You roll out the lines with enough space that you fully saturate each market. If they all came out at once would as many buy XX1? Definitely not. So they wait long enough for everyone who is going to buy the line does.. sales start to fall off, come out with the lower priced spec. Repeat.

Everyone was bummed that XT doesn't have a 10t. But THIS is revolutionary..... here let me top off your glass of Kool-Aid...
