12sp on microspline XT hub was good for me. So quiet and works flawlessly. So far.
Also like the latest generation of brakes and rotors. Put 4pot with that finned 203 XT rotor in front, 2pot rear.

Microspline hub, XT cassette and chain with AXS derailuer and shifter. Best combo ever. If you are going to change this is the way. Have it on 2 bikes now and absolutely love it.

I don’t either, but I have literally charged mine battery twice and I have over 500 miles on my derailleur. I’m sold

Opinion, sell my AXS drivetrain and get a Shimano 12speed setup?

Pros, lighter, even buying new shimano gear I will pocket $$ from the sale of AXS, HG+.

Cons, no more zzzit bleep boop.

I would do it. Sell it to some chum.

When the axs clutch wears out the amount of chain slap is so wack for a high end mtb derailleur. Not acceptable.

Ive been on slx RD with xtr shifter and it's money. Xtr chain and cassette has been good.

+1. Adjustable clutch, more inboard derailleur, HG+ is nice. Have 2 Shimano 12-speed drivetrains on my bikes and they’ve been great.

Patents on bs like that are what really piss me off though. If you can come up with a unique way of doing something things like a clutch adjustments shouldn’t be proprietary.

Like Shimano buying out a hydraulic shifting company and just burying the patents years and years ago?

Did you have to change the pulley wheels on the AXS derailleur? I've heard the N/W profile gives some issues

Just picked up a set of Dominions on a Black Friday deal.
