Tempting, and great price, but just got the Shimano 11x42 so ...

Was curious though. Was there something you didn't like about it?

Also, your youtube channel is really great. Very informative and professionally done. I especially like your product reviews. Good stuff.

Cheers mate!

It’s not really a good match for a Shimano chain, too noisy for my liking.
Obviously I could just get a sram chain, but from reports it will still not be as quiet as a Shimano cassette and chain.
There’s a few other reasons for the swap though.
Had an issue with the xd driver freehub body, so swapping that for a Shimano one.
I don’t really need the 10T. So 11-XX Shimano cassette were I can swap out individual gears to exactly the ones I want is a better solution for me.

This sram cassette is much lighter than Shimano though, will have to learn to live with that 😓

Shimano vs SRAM chains...
I have found I prefer the SRAM chain to the Shimano even on Shimano drive-trains.
The wide ratio cassettes have a tendency to drop out of the lower gears on any ratchet/backpedal off road.
The Shimano chain is "high quality" IMO from a machining/tolerance standpoint, but that is also its downfall in my situation.
I messed with Q-factors and spent all kinds of time trying to resolve the issue still using a shimano chain with no luck.
The SRAM chain is laterally more compliant and it resolved my drive train issues by simply swapping chains.

- Yes on a couple of my bikes, the shimano chain works with no issue.
- Yes on my 2x setups, the shimano chain has been superior.

I have 3 bikes that just don't get along with 100% shimano.
