SRAM Eagle Drivetrain - Review
@TheRaven: I have ridden update shimano thank you. I've also had shimano slx and xt brakes and had nothing but trouble with them. The XT brakes rattled like hell and i had to modify the pads with some rubber to stop the noise. They also had lack lustre power. My son had shimano on his bike and his gears were forever going out of sync. I was trail side with some friends the other week and one complained about his shimano brakes and said every time he invests in shimano he comes away disappointed. Each to their own but I would never swap my sram for shimano.

Shimano XT Di2 Drivetrain - First Ride
This will not be any better than my sram 1x11. There is absolutely no point in this drive train.

SRAM Eagle Drivetrain - Review
I really do think Sram are light years ahead of shimano now with their drive trains and now their brakes. I wouldn't swap my 1x11 or Guide brakes for anything shimano now. Well done sram keep up the great work.

Whyte T-130C Works - Review
I've been riding Whites for the last 3 years now. I don't think you can get a better value bike. Although this carbon one is not necessary. Save your self 2k and get the metal version instead you won't regret it.

These are sooo expensive. Im sure they are good but they would sell loads more if they pitched them at a realistic price.
