 @makripper: I have no affiliation with Shimano, or PB or anything bike related. It's just such a solid bang for the buck. You can get the full group for around $400 online, and the performance is outstanding. Given with the other options cost, it's no wonder it's winning awards.

 @TheRiddleofSteel: fair enough, just seemed like quite the coincidence. the XC bike is still running an XT rear derailler from 2004 haha i'm definitely not hating.
  • + 2
 Nice I've been planning on these cranks and brakes for my SS upgrades this spring weather I win or not. Such good stuff.
  • + 3
 Honestly for my next drivetrain I'm definitely making the switch. I have a GX ten speed and can't wait to give this 11 a try, looks like an incredible value and great performance
  • + 1
 @NWuntilirest: it's as good as you've heard. Running M8000 on my Remedy and love it.

 Last week I was using my laptop on the bus to enter the daily Pinkbike Christmas Advent Calendar when the bus driver passed out. Like any good-looking Samaritan, I took the wheel before realising if the speed dropped below 55mph the UCI would drop DH like they did with 4X. To save DH I sped up, hit a ramp, skipped the bus across the Atlantic, and then crashed into Newfoundland. At some point during all this, somebody stole my laptop. I have now managed to log in and enter with my phone, so please let me win this time around.

 Your transvestite was being weird so you tell at them.: Quit being such a shi-man-hoe!

 I'm no saint but I feel like I deserve some XTras for my bike. That would be off-the-chain. PB cranks out a lot of these contests and I have no i-Dihow2 win.

 Out of all the prizes, please let me win this... I hate my SRAM brakes

 Oh, this is that company that make that nice tape that they line race courses with!
I didn't know they made other stuff besides that?

 Might be the sailor jerry, but I laughed loud enough for my wife to give me a confused look

 There isn't much I signed up for here, but this is a great product for any mtb rider. Would I finally upgrade from 9sp and octalink cranks?

 You heathen, you're practically in the stone age! (Or a modern day Kona precept 130!)

 @Kiwiplague: all my friends are heathens, take it slow...

 @WAKIdesigns: "wait for them to ask you who you know, shimano xt you'll never lose, because it can take some abuse".
  • + 2
 @Kiwiplague: I'm no heathen. I believe in trees, flowers and dirt. I've been good to them as well. The thing is, I haven't really had big issues with what I'm running. Others probably have as the cranks tend to come loose (I carry a 10mm allen key in my camelbak as for some reason it hasn't been included in the multitools I've seen) so it creaks a lot. Not everyone likes that. And when I read PB reviews stating that gear got so much better than it was five years ago I'm laughing as except for the wear parts, most stuff is easily twice as old. The right LX crank (and spider) is from 2004, the left (non series) crank is from 2008 (when I wrecked the original left crank). So basically I'm just curious whether I'd enjoy the benefits. With a clutch mech and non-creaky cranks my bike would be dead silent!

 @vinay: Hey, if it works, ride it! Most of my rides over the years have been at the more budget oriented side of things and I've had a blast on all of them. My current ride has a few of the newer "standards" incorporated into it, but I don't for a minute think it's made me a better rider in any way.
  • + 1
 @Kiwiplague: Oh yeah. Currently out with injury but otherwise nothing would really stop me riding what I have now. It is pretty much old standard wherever possible and once you're there you kind of stop upgrading anything because nothing is compatible. Or buy a new bike and nothing of what you currently have can be transferred. But I'm not worried. I'm pretty sure I can keep buying quality 26" stuff and decent 9sp spares for another ten years. I might not take advantage of the latest developments but it won't degrade my riding either.
  • + 6
 Crooked SRAM can't make a budget drivetrain like the XT! SAD! Those Shimano guys, they have lots of drivetrains, the best drivetrains!
  • + 1
 Lol, why do you have to get me all depressed like that? God that guy is a moron. The only pattern you were off on is the SAD! is the one liner that he puts at the end of his twatters.
