Nope. Need same speed and same brand.

I think People ran Shimano 10 spd mechs with sram 9spd triggers through a small shim on the cable attachment bolr. So there are Frankenstein options out there but yes in general same spd and brand.

Hey guys
I'm in need for a setup help
My current bike is a Scott gambler 710 with boxxer wc and fox RC4
The bike feels very good and fast on tight and steep sections with alot of brake bumps
The problem is in rocky and flatter areas the bike feels sluggish and it translate into awful lot of harm pump and hand pain
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

Its normal for a dh to feel sluggish on the flatter trails because of the HA

Yout got the correct size frame?
Because the same happened to me with a frame that was too small. I had to move my upper body too much to compensate the short reach and that put a lot of stress on my forearms and especially my fingers which had to overgrip.
Since moving to a larger frame i´m now finally riding pain free, which hasn´t happened in 14 years of riding.
I also feel like smaller dh frames tend to accentuate the sluggish feeling of a slack headangle as you end up with a very narrow balance point. Add to that the Gambler not being the longest bike out there, you may very well be on the wrong size bike. Just a theory though.
It might as well be that your suspension settings suck or you have the adjustments on the Gambler setup in a weird way. In which settings did you put the CS and headangle?
Would you say your setup is more on the soft side or more firm?

Do you prefer riding tubed or tubeless tires on your DH bike and why?

Tubeless. Lower pressure, feels better, fewer flats.
