I've gone as far as 4 chains on an XTR cassette once I stopped over oiling and washing too much. I'm switching from XTR to XT for replacing cassettes because the steel XT gogs will last longer than the alloy XTR and $70.00 is easier to caugh up than $250.00. The weight difference is minor and is off set by the cost. Anal is as anal does I suppose. Later,

Performance will match on line prices in the store if they have the part and if you ship it to the store it's free. My LBS will match Performance price. The xtr weighs 81 grams less than the xt so it is $53.00 an ounce. Spend the money you save and buy lighter tires and the weight savings is better it the rim than the hub. Good luck on the race Goo!
