The SQLab 60X Saddle, Steep Seat Tube Angles, & The Banshee Titan - April 6, 2021, 8:35 p.m.

I don't know this for sure and don't know how or where to get it but I've read that people are shimming the v3 banshees and using 30.9 posts. Getting an extra inch or so of insertion for the 210 droppers.  That's what the internet told me anyways. Might be worth a look.

I ran friction for years because I was too lazy to tune my ancient 7 speed and it was great on the days I hit every shift perfect but unfortunately that didn't happen every day. Then it sucked. But on a good day you can shift better and smoother than any indexing system. 

Let's here more about the Titan. I'm on a v2 spitfire and I love it. But want a v3 frame or a Prime. Don't need either but want. Probably just mullet the spitfire for kicks.

How about xt 7 speed thumbie?  Have them on my town bike and they are still the best. I'd buy an 11 speed one in a heartbeat if Shimano or Sram made one. But won't give up indexing. Multi release has nothing on thumbshifters that index perfect.

I'm using an xt sgs 12 speed derailleur on a Garbaruk 11-50 11 speed cassette with xt 11 speed shifter. Works perfect. So shimano 11and 12 speed are compatible. While I was researching this the internet told me over and over that not only is this true, but apparently Sram 11 speed and 12 speed are also compatible.  With themselves and Shimano.  So basically I could have just as easily used an XO 12 speed derailleur with the shimano 11 speed shifter. But I didn't. But you can see where I'm going.
