      Comments about Sram X.9 9 Speed Rear Derailleur 2011:

      Had this stock on my FR bike. Not bad, durable and shifts decently. I'm impressed. Unfortunately I don't like the shifter ergonomics and you can't use this with Shimano shifters which I have preference for.

        I run this derailleur on my commuter bike. It is Specialized mountain bike that gets me to and from school. I live in a Place where it snows a third of the year, and I still ride my bike through it. Because of all the salt and grime, I wind up going through a chain each winter. This derailleur has yet to show any signs of braking (It has been through two winters). As far as I am concerned, one cannot break this derailleur. If you need a derailleur that can take a beating, this is the one for you.
        Also works pretty well when I am mountain Biking. Shifts well and precisely.

        Comments about Sram X.9 9 Speed Rear Derailleur 2011:

        I've been riding X9 long cage rear derallieur for long time now, and in my previous bike. I never had to adjust it. Even after a crash where I completely bend the derallieur hanger; after replacing it it was still working perfect, that's more than I could ever say about others derallieurs.

          I have used the X9 Derailleurs for some time now and they never fail me. I more recently bought a bike that came with a Shimano XT Shadow derailleur and I did not like it at all. The Sram feels better to me and seems to operate smoother as well.

          Awesome product. Stays in tune and has been excellent. I prefer Sram X0 twist shifters and it works great with them.

          This derail shift pretty smooth if you tune it pretty good. at first it was locking its just because it wasnt tuned right, but after a good tuning it shifts like a butter...

            Comments about Sram X.9 9 Speed Rear Derailleur 2011:

            I use the long cage x9 on my trance. I do trail/all mountain riding. I've used it for about a year now. The thing is starting to look pretty beat up but still shifts like a champ. It's taken a few crashes, a caught twig, leaves, mud, etc. Still going strong. If you're really worried about weight, get the XO. I think it's a little silly though unless you're doing some hardcore xc racing. Definitely recommend.

            great deraillure. i really dont understamd why you would spend over $100 more on the x0 which is only a few grams lighter. only difference between the two is the x0 is carbon. sram blows shimano out of the water in my opinion.
