How much does this stuff cost.
I notice 2 rings costing about 10 quid less than the whole XTR cassette etc..
Talk about milking it.

If I see anyone with this that is not sponsered i'll just laugh at them.

When it first came out the 'Racing' M900 groupset was quite a bit better than XT. Of course that lead only lasts a few years before everything catches up.

I think now though it's even more designed for racing, so designed to last that long a season of racing ?

They must be bringing out a new XTR groupset soon (2010 ?) as the new SLX has pretty much what it and XT have and does it well (at the expense of weight and quality I guess) So they'll showcase something new in XTR, hope this Yumeya pimping isn't it :lol:
Somebody up with the modern world might know

I like XTR stuff, some of the group sets look better than XT and i know it's lighter and much much more expensive which is why i try to wait an buy what bits i can.

Why laugh at people with XTR, they have better components that you if your not running XTR!! :wink:
