I run XT with a 2x9 and have had no complaints.

Shifting is kinda crappy on my Ellsworth this year- if new cables don't clean it up I may change shifter/rear der. I'm running 13 year old XTR shifters with a XT rear 9 speed. I'm going to keep it 3x9. I was thinking either Sram X9 or Shimano SLX or XT
Any favorites with the retro 9 speed crowd?

Mommy- theres a root on the trail! Make it go away! I want my Binkie
