When I build a bike, fella, it's very much a case of 'pinning the tail on the donkey' - all blindfolded.. :wink:

And as for SRAM - shame on you.

SRAM are always on good offers on CRC, but I don't rate their longevity.

Saying that, I don't rate XTR much either. Or modern XT, though they come in at a nice weight/price ratio.

I guess SRAM cassette and chain, throw away once a year or as often as needed.

The smallest sprockets on a cassette wear quickest, but if you buy an XT cassette you can buy the smallest 3 or 4 sprockets separately and replace any worn ones individually and make the cassette as a whole last longer.

or just buy another cassette, it might be cheaper.
