Looking for a new cassette and wanted to know if the sram R9's shifting performance is on par with a shimano ultegra. I want to try the R9, but I don't want to get stuck with a piece.

dont know about the road.. but on my kestrel mountain bike i use all sram stuff and it is totally flawless.. crisp, smooth shifts everytime, no matter what the conditions.

I use only the chains from sram and they are very good (with powerlink) together with my ultegra cassette.

I've used SRAM chains for years on both my 8 and 9sp Ultegra'd bikes and I think they work just fine and are durable to boot. I currently use the 89R chain and wholeheartily recommend it. Powerlink makes chain removal a snap.
