im looking for a nice SHIMANO 1x crankset to lighten my race rig for next year. I plan on switch back and forth between my SRAM SRM powermeter and the 1x SHIMANO crank for racing. I have a little adapter ring to make both fit in the same BB.

My question is, what would you guys do? Wait for the M9000 crankset or pick up a nice M980 crankset? The drawback with the M9000 is I think it will use a proprietary BCD while the M980 uses a 104 BCD. The other drawback is if im stuck with 11spd chainring on the M9000 due to the special BCD it may not work adequatly on my 10spd drivetrain.

What do you think?

Go for M980. In addition to the benefits you already listed, it's a beauty compared to 9000.

If we talk about looks, then 980 is a beauty and 9000 a beast. At least for my eyes :wink:

M980, so nice and having a standard chainring is a lot nicer and cheaper to replace / change for different conditions
