North East baby... Rocky, rooty, muddy, wet, cold, hot crazy singletrack. MTB at it's best!

Christopher's Bio

I like to mountain bike, hike, fish, swim, trail run, and catch small frogs for dinner.

In my spare time I also like to star-gaze and reminisce about the time I was abducted by aliens and used as an extraterrestrial experiment.

I have gone through a couple XT cassettes which says two things. 1 - they are sweet, and they shift great. 2 - they are pretty fragile IMO. I had two cassettes and bent a cog on each one. And yes I know how to shift and I take care of my gear. But broken parts come with the territory on MTB. If my new one breaks, I will buy another one.

The GS is a mid cage model and is designed to work with up to a 33 teeth rear cassette. The SGS is the long cage model and is designed to work with up to a 42 teeth rear cassette.If you're new to MTB and shifting, go with the long cage as you'll probably cross-shift a lot. Otherwise go with the mid-cage which is what most people run IMHO.
