First Look: SRAM's New GX Drivetrain Offers 520% Range
@Dogl0rd: I am sure my trails are just as steep. If one is climbing such steep technical terrain, there is little chance they will be spinning out the low end unless they are doing laps down a mountain highway. The gear range is redundant, regardless of steepness or size of legs. Any marketed benefit is entirely redundant and comes at the greater and far reaching cost and P.I.T.A. of incompatible parts and endless pushing of useless new standards.

First Look: SRAM's New GX Drivetrain Offers 520% Range
@Dogl0rd: Not the point. The gear range they are selling is pointless. It is marketing "easier" gears as if it is a benefit, when in reality, it offers virtually nothing in exchange for a whole bunch of non-compatible garbage. This is simply marketing by specs, rather than utility. They don't care about what actually serves riders...they just want to out-range Shimano.

First Look: SRAM's New GX Drivetrain Offers 520% Range
Here's the really stupid thing. The gearing is getting so ridiculously high, that it no longer really helps with climbing. When you're spinning that high of a gear, you're just bobbing up and down and no longer generating as much momentum. Even on my existing Eagle cassette, I have to drop down a gear or two on the most technical climbs just to maintain traction and not spin out. It's almost as if they are just trying to appeal to lazier weaker riders that want softer and easier gears.
