First Ride - SRAM Debuts DH Specific 7 Speed Drivetrain
There's really not that much expense over existing x0 derailleurs and shifters, aside form the cassette. If you're in the market for x0 then you have discerning tastes and are well aware that quality doesn't come cheaply. Gains? Gearing designed for DH purposes, wider gear spacing to eliminate double shifts, x-sync chain rings, etc.. did you even read the article or watch the video? That would answer most of your questions. It was pretty thorough. If swapping out your freehub isn't an option, they didn't limit you to the 7 speed setup, there's a 10 speed version that is compatible with every bike out there and will allow you to run a cheaper 1070 cassette if you want. They're not forcing you into anything, they are giving you the options that have been requested by racers forever. Stop your bitching? Wolftooth/Oneup are irrelevant here as it is a limited range DH group we're talking about, and not a wide range trail group.

First Ride - SRAM Debuts DH Specific 7 Speed Drivetrain
@reformedroadie. the only change to your current wheel set would be locating an xd1 driver and swapping it out. Thats a relatively easy change to make and doesn't require "people to use their xx1 trail wheels on their dh bike." Sorry for reposting info above in my previous post. Was posting it from my phone and apparently a few people beat me to it.

@djpearce The 10t sits where the lockring used to and the 42t is dished to sit closer to the spokes. Go to your local shop and take a close look at the cassette.

You need the xd1 driver for the 10t cog. Keeping the spacing 11spd let's you use already existing x-sync chain rings and chains which greatly reduces r&d time and costs. Pricing is identical to x0 derailleurs that are already on the market. Why are you bitching? if x9 is your price range then stick to it. This is top of the line machinery that has been asked for for years. Companies monitor these boards and actually listen to feedback/requests.

Fox 34 CTD 160mm. 650b

$600 USD
Fox Float 34: 160mm travel. CTD. 650b Steerer tube: 7" long. I bought this fork new as I was leaving for a trip and my Pike had not shown up yet. It has about 10 rides on it and is in excellent shape. Stanchions are perfect and scratch free. The lowers on the disc side have some light scuffing below the sticker (see pic) but its pretty minor and is the only blemish. I'm willing to ship at buyers expense within the US or Canada.
