Can anybody tell me the differences between STX and STX RC?
Was it an upgrade or a specific year thing or what? What does the 'RC' stand for?
All info gratefully received,
Thank you.

That's a possibility - but why are there 'RC' front hubs and brakes? :?

9spd cassette should work OK on STX RC. Same width cassette as 8spd that I've been running.

Don't think the RC was specifically for 8 Speed as I have a set of STX-RC hubbed wheels that are 7s and a mate has a set that are 8s, the 8s are specifically marked as being for 8s, the 7s say nothing and are similar to the plain STX hubbed wheels on my wifes Trek.

Thought the first RC's were the same but with a fancy 'smoked' finish?

I think the 'fancy smoked finish' was called Chromica Bronze or something like that but it was available on STX as well.
