#!markdown Interesting article. On the point about weight vs durability and price, SRAM has a couple products that seem to have gone a bit under the radar. The GX1 1150 cassette has a steel 42 tooth cog whereas the higher series cassettes use aluminum and cost twice as much. Shift quality seems just as good. True there is a weight penalty relative to the higher end SRAM offerings, but it is still lighter than the Shimano XT 11-42 cassettes. SRAM is also offering steel 28, 30 and 32 tooth front chain rings in the $30 range.
