      I am mainly a shimano guy but…… Here are my stats.

      Shifters: SLX
      crankset: SLX 22-36-Bashgaurd
      front derailleur: XT
      rear derailleur: XTR 9 speed
      cassette: SLX 11-34
      brakes: BB7’s
      chain: SRAM 😏 Only because of the power link.

      I was just curious what brands and models you guys use.

      Just so you know, that same powerlink works just fine on KMC and Shimano chains. I’ve used it on both.

      Thanks. What is your set-up maddslacker?

    • #92995

      Shimano, except for the KMC chain I just got.

    • #92996

      shimano xt shifters, front and rear derailleurs. Hope breaks.

      I have always used shimano, i have some friends who use Sram and they like them

      I’ll stay away from those then. I prefer stuff that doesn’t break… 😆

    • #93001

      Complete SRAM X0, except for XTR crankset and HOPE brakes. LOVE it………..

      I’ve been much more impressed with Sram as a whole. The high end stuff from both companies works really well, but the mid and lower end Sram is more reliable than similar Shimano.

      X9 is probably the best performance/dollar value you can find anywhere.

      I ride a single speed so….neither. Well, I do have Shimano XT cranks.

      KMC chain
      Surly stainless steel chainring
      Surly stainless steel rear cog

      For races/days in the mtns I swap to an aluminum Homebrew Components rear cog.

      I’ll be putting an aluminum HBC chainring on once I take the time to shortern my chainring bolts a bit.

      XT everything on my rigid. deora on my FS with 6 piston Gadorbrakes. I have new avid disk just have not put them on yet. Also what to you guys think about running two chain rings up front instead of two. And if you do run two witch rings teeth wise.

    • #93007

      You’re in GA right?

      I would go with small and middle chainrings. Like a 22-32 or 22-36 set-up.

      I run a 22-36 set-up and love it.

    • #93008

      I personally ran a 24-36 bash with my old RaceFace Atlas cranks…Before running the new 2×10 sram X9 (26-39)….
