Hi guys,

I want to uppgrade my current 1x8 and I'm using bafang with 48T chainring. The reason to upgrade is that I can't find quality components for 8 speed system. I want to buy Saint shifter and RD, XT 11-36. Then I Saw the price isn't much from 11 speed system and it's more future proof.

I did my calculations and found out that it will cost me:
247€ for
- saint shifter
-saint derailleur
-KMC x11e ept
-M771 11-36
-Jagwire elite sealed

314€ for
-M9000 shifter
-M8000 derailleur
-XT 11-46
-Jagwire elite sealed
-KMC X11E ept

283€ :
-M8000 shifter
-M8000 derailleur
-XT 11-46
-Jagwire elite sealed
-KMC X11E ept

And now I'm completely lost. The Saint shifter has 4 multi bearing construction and the M8000 has only 2, therefore I added M9000 to my consideration! 1x11 more range and appealing big cog 46, while the saint is cheaper and 1x10 has thicker chain which I guess more longevity to my e bike.

I need your suggestions guys!!

I'm not going to use it on DH or trail. It's just my commuter and all I care about is precision and smooth in shifting in bad salty winter.
