Twist forward 4-5 times to transition from a steep uphill to a steep downhill and vice-versa. With the 1x11 it makes everything faster/more intuitive: Twist forward for harder gears, backward for easier gears. That's it - one handle with one easy motion for all your gears. So far loving this thing.
Put this on a carbon rear wheel from light-bicycle (Hope evo hubs) on a 2014 StumpJumper Evo 29". So far this upgrade is well worth the $ spent, X01 + grip shift makes shifting super fast and intuitive - I know XX1/X01 is "super high-end" now, but it actually makes shifting so straightforward it's something a beginner would better understand. I ride xc mainly and it's so much easier to change gears on the variety of short/long hills of varying steepness.
Stock x7-9 setup sucked by comparison IMO. Shifting on this is super fast/smooth which changes ride quality for me completely.
No more 175mm length in this and you don't offer the X01 version. Are you getting either in stock any time soon?
Can I use this with the X01 derailleur, X01 cassette, and shifters?
Will it work on the DT's 1600 wheels?
What is the inner/outer rim width and spoke count on this wheel and can it be adapted to the xx1 cassette with an adapter?
Also is the wheel suitable moderate drops at bike parks (e.g. up to 4-5ft)?
How can I tell if my bike has a "Centerlock" disc rotor? If it doesn't does the "Centerlock adapter" make this wheel work with my current rotor?
