I though all Sram stuff worked on a 1:1 actuation, even the 10 speed stuff. Looking at the Sram website Exact Actuation is just their posh 'tech' name for 1:1.
I don't see why the mech won't work...the cassette is the same overall width and its the shifter that denotes how far it moves. The only thing may be the jockey wheels...they may be slightly wider on 9 speed that 10. I see to run an old retro 7 speed Dura Ace mech on my DH bike which was 9 speed. All I did was sap the jockey wheels over.
I'd give it a go and see what happens.
I think that best.
I will try it on 9spd just to see what happens but im guessing it will be like trek_y's suggestion that the jumps are a tiny bit different and that would probable lead to clicking no matter how closely its set up
1:1,1:2 'actual' actuation
And not that i can see it making that
much of a difference.
Strange thing is that ive always found shimano 1:2 or whatever to be considerably easier to change gear,almost like sram is slightly stiffer to push the levers.Of course that could be just my cable routing but im sure others have commented on the same thing
I like sram
the X stuff, especially at the higher end is a really fresh look at things when everything was either shimano or a weird twistgrip
I like that their [sram] mechs dont jump about in the bumpy stuff and are quite skeletal in design,for saving a few grams. Adding ano was a nice thing to see coming in but i fear it has set off a blaze that has engulfed us all
I think i'd better do a wee sale of spares as i think the upgrade is going to cost a pretty penny
