I've demoed GX Eagle on two bikes. I can't get on with the shifter. Compared to the original XX1 (also on two bikes), it's stiffer with noticeably higher thumb effort. Feels like XT. Do you know if the X01 or XX1 Eagle shifters are any better? I'm tempted to mix and match. 11S X01 cassette, X01 DUB cranks, GX Eagle derailleur, and X01/XX1 11S shifters. Even the lightest Eagle cassette is 100g over the 11S predecessor. If 10-42 wasn't enough, I'd be more likely to try Garbaruk's 11S 10-50: same range, same construction, but 40g and $150 under Eagle XX1.
