      I have just purchased this to convert my Vitus nuleus 27 vr from a 2×9 toa 1×10.

      Just wondered if what I paid was worth it and if its any good. I paid £90 for the set.

      Will be using a Raceface 32t N|W upfront.

      Any info would be much appreciated.

      10 speed groupset in near-perfect condition, customised with aftermarket parts from Garbaruk for an ultralight wide-range drivetrain. The following are included:

      – SRAM X0 type 2 derailleur, with aftermarket Garbaruk cage. This offsets the top pulley and allows fitment of wide range cassettes, whilst also enabling the top jockey wheel to track the cassette much more closely. It basically gives you the simplicity and easy setup of 10 speed with a complete wide range cassette solution. I can include the original carbon derailleur cage (medium) too on request. There are some light scratches to the aluminium parts of the derailleur but overall excellent cosmetics and perfect working order.

      – SRAM X0 shifter, stock setup. Fully adjustable in all the usual ways. Almost immaculate, just slight cable rub from brake lines.

      – Garbaruk / XT Conversion cassette, 11-42. This is a combination of Garbaruk’s three aluminium cogs on a carrier, with the remainder of an XT cassette. Check out their website for more detail – it’s a lovely bit of machining and gives a nice smooth spread of gears, much better than a step-up cog. There’s very little wear to the aluminium part of the cassette, just the usual cosmetic rub from shifting. The whole cassette weighs in at just 270g. That’s 100g less than SRAM’s current generation eagle…

      – SRAM PC1051 chain, in great, clean condition.

      Thanks all! 🙂

      Honestly, the rear derailleur would cost what you paid for the set. Ride it and enjoy. Might want to use a fresh chain tho…
