I've been running this on my XC bike for about 7 months now and it is flawless! Shifting is spot on and crisp, the X.0 works great in all conditions and the cool looking factor is way up there. I'll say the X.9 rear derailleur works every bit as good as the X.0 but it is 27 grams heavier and doesn't have the "ooh-ah" factor that carbon fiber does - but either way you go you'll be happy with the performance and reliability of SRAM ;)

SRAM makes me happy!!!! Fire and forget with this baby! Rock solid design - been riding it for 7 months now and not a problem with it - dry and dusty to wet and muddy it just plain works! I have the SRAM X.0 on my XC bike and it doesn't work any better than the X.9. If I had to do it over again I'd put the X.9s on both of my bikes and get a haircut to save the 27ish grams of difference ;)

I run the 160mm version of these on the rear of my all mountain (and all hill - all trail and all road) bike love them. They are easy to dial in to fit you perfect and grab the hell out of the rear with just a finger or two of pressure on the lever. I can't say that I notice any difference in my bike's steering because of the reduced weight, but I'm not a super world class rider (yet) and really, ever since I put these on my bike all my attention has been taken up fending off the women that try to molest me because of my super cool brakes on the trails ;)

Seriously! The bottom line is these sexy beasts stop you when and where you want to stop - and they do it with ease!

I've used Louie-G, Specialized and Giro and I like this Fox lid the best. It really hugs my head. It's light, secure, well ventilated and very comfortable. The straps took all of 5 minutes to get dialed in and then I was ready to roll.

It's only been on a couple rides so far and no crashes so I can't say how it will weather the weather long term but I'll report back if I have any problems - and also if I happen to land on my head while riding I'll post how well it does keeping my nugget in one piece ;)

So - what sort of padding does this have to protect our bikes from the gorillas that work as baggage handlers - those cats are ROUGH!

Also - what does this bag weigh? It's expensive enough to fly with a bike even if you can avoid the overweight charges.

And finally - are the wheels replaceable? That's key because if you fly a lot it's not if the wheels will get all busted up but WHEN ;)
