So it seems on the Cannondale website they might have spilled the beans early. I was looking at the new fsi's and saw the lowest model for 2100 USD. So I thought to myself - theres no way cannondale could spec gx eagle for 2100 bucks. Then, under closer inspection, on the spec sheet, the shifters and derailleur is listed as "SRAM Eagle 12 speed TBA".

Why would it be "12 speed TBA"?why not just say "gx eagle"? So I looked at the photos of the bike and zoomed in on the derailleur. It looks like this:

Looks pretty similar to GX eagle, Almost identical. The thing that gave it away that it is NX eagle is that there is no massive "GX" logo on the derailleur like this: Image

I am fairly confident that this means NX Eagle.
Is my theory correct? anyone know anything else?

Is it worth it to pay the extra money for the GX cassette?
