DIRTRAG: New Shimano XT Review

Shimano XT Dirtrag

I’ve always been a fan of the XT grouppo as I’ve had full groups on previous XC bikes and am currently running the M760 Rear derailleur on my 1×9 setup. Justin at Dirt Rag has been riding the new, fully redesigned 2012 Shimano XT setup out in Tahoe for the past few months and has a solid review on all aspects of these components; there are some well-played additions for sure -I hear the cooling fins really work, from multiple sources too ; )  Read that here and see some more preview shots below.
