    Looks cool. Something I would consider for my XC bike.

    Having warrantied my first TRS+ 11-sp to fix a problem that showed up after six months of use, I’m not super sold on a two-piece cassette. I have yet another (newer) that I ran successfully on the AZT. The older one was the previous gen, which had some issues with a composite part which attaches to the drive.

    A grinding noise can be had under load when it’s very dirty, as I did even on the later gen one. This phenomenon is documented online.

    Love the range and shifting is fine, but I’d look elsewhere if I was gearing up today. Two-piece cassette...what could go wrong?

    I just question how useful a 9t cog really is. Just seems like no matter how good you have your derailleur set up, you are only getting 3-4 teeth engaged at any time. Sounds like a recipe for skipping....and a cog that wears out prematurely.

    A friend of mine who works at another shop here in town had the skipping problems on a customers bike and I dont remember how they fixed it. But I know it wasn’t easy.
