Ask Pinkbike: Mixed Drivetrains & Wheel Sizes, 29ers For Older Riders, G2 vs Code Brakes
@Svinyard: I never really used Sram Eagle long-term as I generally prefer the feel and features of the Shimano shifters. The revised 12sp shifter are definitely an upgrade in terms of ergonomics, with rubberised shifter paddles and what not. However, if you prefer the more "positive" feel of Sram shifters, that won't change. What is the most impressive with the 12sp Shimano is the buttery shifting action, even under full load. On top, the 10-51 is a very refined casette in my opinion and, overall, it looks the part.

@JamieMcL: Guess that depends on what cassette you are running. The gear ratios on the 11-46 are a joke and I never really got on with it. The shifting quality is as expected for Shimano. In terms of gear ratios, I much preferred to run a SRAM 10-42 with a smaller chainring upfront. Shifting is quality is quite a bit lower, though, and you have to be a bit more careful under load. The new 10-51 is much better in terms of gear ratios and the shifting quality is up another level compared to M8k. If the time is up on your 11sp XT, I'd def consider the extra expense of upgrading to the 12sp (possibly SLX).

I ran Shimano XT 12sp with the new chain on a GX Eagle cassette due to the limited XT/SLX cassette availability in Europe post launch. I have since upgraded to the matching XT cassette and the shifting quality is just on a different level. I can't tell the difference between 12sp XT and XTR that I run on my other bike, but the "GXT" hybrid is lightyears away, especially when shifting under load.
