why do you want to swap? surely theyre similar? or is it because you want to match model?
would you sell yours?

If its the ratio's then I've got a few sprockets around so that you could alter ratio's ;)

Now that could be a good plan,most of the upper ones are twin sprockets,and titanium 8) I would not mind a 23 and 25 top pair and a change in the middle somwhere :?

What have you got si :?: If you could pop me some in the post I could have a play :?

Well they wont be Ti , as I think they are off maybe a XT or Ultegra .. I'll have to dig my way into the workshop with all this snow first and I'll let you know what ratio's I have for you.. ;) , be tomorrow now ;)

redbeard i like that :lol: :lol:

erm, while were here, i have trouble with my 7th on my cassette. i have tried a few different combinations down that end and can get the 7th to shift ok but then the 8th messes up i think
(the smaller end, high gears? i always get confused!)

think it might be ultegra but can check if needs be

Is SRAM compatible with what you've got?

I think it is yes,x0 9 speed might be of interest,the dura ace is mental light so want something quite light in return.. :D

Ive got a new (unused) 9 speed SRAM 11-32 don't know if its
light or not as I don't have anything to compaire it to :?

It depends if it is x0 as I dont want a low level s ram really,if it is under 200 grams it is light,my dura ace weighs about 140 grams for comparison..pics would be good of your though.
