They know. I rode several different 3d printed versions of the upgrade Jeremy has and liked the one they didn't produce. Apparently Nino's opinion carries more weight than mine 🤣🤣
they should just take the mechanical lever and use that positioning.
I know how that sounds and that’s probably why they won’t do it, but the benefits of Eagle AXS is not the shifter.
They can make the shifter look different, they just need the buttons where the levers used to be. When I ride a mechanical shifter it’s a much more natural feel.
Seems like a valid option since the road groups basically use that concept
Fully concur. Now that I have the lever in a fairly decent position and am getting used to which way shifts up/down, must say the shifting is fairly amazing. And that's on a worn cassette that really needs to be changed. I always hesitated to shift more than one gear with the mechanical shifters as the sounds coming off the cassette just weren't very pleasant.i agree. Not sure why they tried to fix something that was not broken.
with all the complaining about the lever done, I should say the actual shifting is perfect.
You can adjust each shift (if you even need to) so it never over or under shifts on any gear.
It’s great when drop down a hill and just tap 4 or 5 times to get in a high gear.
Or vice versa and you are heading up a hill, you tap as many times as you need to get in a low gear and it’s pretty much instantaneous.
These are the situations where you appreciate AXS the most. That and the install which takes 5 minutes.
The big cost will likely be the XD hub body (assuming your hub can be converted easily) and the 12 spd cassette (which is OMFG-expensive).What do I need to install this on my Pivot 429 trail? Im Full shimano XT 11 speed at the moment. Original since 2016. With a One up 30 tooth chainring
Imagine the bars on a single speed bike - only brake lines. Especially if you add a Reverb AXS wireless dropper.I did not know this! It makes the package much nicer.
Seems like a huge expenses to make the switch. If you already had a sram wide range cassette. Would be a great upgrade. I'm not spending 1k to do it.The big cost will likely be the XD hub body (assuming your hub can be converted easily) and the 12 spd cassette (which is OMFG-expensive).
I've read 12 spd Shimano cassettes have the same cog spacing as SRAM cassettes and they are interchangeable, but I don't have personal experience with it (yet - stay tuned). However, in your case, you will still need to get a Microspline hub body in place of the HG body and a 12 spd cassette, although it seems the lower end Shimano 12 spd cassettes are more reasonably priced than the SRAM options (assuming you can find one in stock right now).
The reduced cost of Gx Is a major factor. Makes me much more inclined to try it with my 12 speed shimano.Imagine the bars on a single speed bike - only brake lines. Especially if you add a Reverb AXS wireless dropper.
Honestly, the idea of such a clean cockpit is what draws me to AXS, despite being a very long time Shimano user.
Supposedly that's the hot ticket. Shimano cassette and chain with SRAM derailleur and shifter. Shift up and down under power. And less cost.The reduced cost of Gx Is a major factor. Makes me much more inclined to try it with my 12 speed shimano.
