    Has anyone else installed one of these?

    My Intense Tracer T275 is equipped with SRAM X01 bits; the cassette wore out and I installed a TRS+, and had a hell of a time getting the derailleur to work with it.

    Had to fiddle a lot with chain length, finally got it working, but it's not real happy running on the nine tooth cog, some interference with derailleur cage.

    I run a 10sp 9-42 TRS+ with a Saint RD and a RADr cage. Works fine for me!

    Shouldn't it clear the 9 tooth, I mean it is smaller than what would normally be there..

    Will you actually use the 9 toother? :busted:

    9 x 46 is a big range.

    Shortened the chain as much as I reasonably could allowing for suspension travel, but it's a little slack on the nine tooth and derailleur has used up all of its tensioning spring.

    I doubt that I'll use the nine tooth much.

    Looking for someone who has traveled this road with an X01 derailleur.

    Get on the bike and see if the chain is still loose. I highly doubt that as the chain growth will take care of the slack when the suspension sags. I suggest you try THAT nao! :boss:

    Did that, rides fine, I like it. Also like the new S1 wheel. Silent, better engagement.

    Never had a problem with XX-1 on that cassette and I expect X-01 would be basically the same. Have you checked the b-tension screw?

    i wouldn’t have either, but a buddy who is definitely not easy on things, rides a lot, and wrecks a lot, has been on one for a few years and it hasn’t blown up...yet...

    Yeah, my opinion is based on 5+ years old anecdotal evidence.
    I am sure that they have improved.

    At my own level, I had beat the crap out of the prior wheel for three years, and the S1's beefier.
