So who has speculation to weigh in?

More importantly, who has those "spy shots"?

Photos taken from the Australian REP's mountainbike.

Other than the photos, lips were tight sealed.

From what I can tell, its a modified SRAM Red RD and 10spd PowerDome Cassette paired with road double-tap technology trigger shifters...

9 Speed SRAM double tap shifters are in the 2009 SRAM big catalog. They say only compatible with X.- though.

10 Speed SRAM flat bar shifters are already available.

That looks like a RED cassette to me.

10 speed mountain bike? Urgg.... no thanks.

I wish someone would come up with a kick arse 2x9 crankset with a ultra tight chainline instead.

That drivetrain in the Australian Rep's bike is just RED, not X.X. I can see RED powerdome cassette (11-26 I bet), RED RD and sram road 10-speed flatbar shifters.

However I bet that new X.X. will based on current RED technology.

You're right in saying that's Rob's bike...everyone else is right in saying it's just double tap flat bar shifters, a red derailleur and red cassette. A custom build for the Chase the Sun series of enduro races (no hills).

agreed those pics are just Sram Red with double tap shifters, nothing special about that.

To be honnest ive know about X.X for roughly 6 months now. I've discussed it elsewhere on the Internet but Sram had the info removed :roll:

I like the idea of moving away from the triple chainring.

Lightning has, I believe finally available now, a mountain bike double:

Is that a 74PCD pattern? Would be great, especially for longer events as it would allow a slightly smaller inner ring and in general more options. Same route that Rotor has taken with their mtb double, although it uses a 110 outer..

Yes, it is. Not a bad option for some road riders, either.

I don't think Powerdome cassette as it is in the Red group is a good idea for mountain bikes... Mud has nowhere to go since there is no space between cogs, then the chain slips... SRAM cross sponsored athletes like the Cannondale-cyclocrossworld.com team are not using Red cassettes anymore because of that. My guess is they might use the Powerdome technology but with deeper channels between cogs or something...
