What a difference from my Ultegra 6700, which I constantly had to fiddle with to try to get it shifting precisely. The SRAM Red shifting is instant and faultless, when you have got used to double tap. As a previous reviewer said 'why would you ever want electronic shifting'. Brakes are just awesome, although I didn't use the stock pads, instead opting for Swissstop Blue BXPs..I would recommend you watch the SRAM instructions on Youtube before fitting as the written instructions are not totally clear.
I have bought two of these groupsets. Goes with out saying
Great product and great service.
Great product - easy to install and use - love the double click levers. Much better than the Ultegra system they replaced.
Significantly lighter than shimano or campag equivalent, (though 10spd vs 11spd) with smooth positive shifts and it looks pretty cool too.
One watch out, I went for the gxp bottom bracket and you must ensure that this is properly torqued. Too light and there will be play in the bottom bracket, too much as with any thing you risk damaging parts.
Initial ride done and coming from Shimano Dura Ace 7900, and Campag record I'm very impressed!
Will be looking to convert the rest of my bikes to SRAM.
I was using Sram Apex and I just bought this group set as an upgrade to my existing one.
I found lots of improvement from the 2013 sram red group. Shift at front is impressive. Great job to SRAM overall
First rate service, groupset was ordered, despatched the same day and received the following day. All items as advertised and boxed in original packaging.
New bike, assembled and riding like a dream, an amazing groupset at an amazing price.
Thank you Merlin you are Wizard.
Super fast shipping. The sram red groupset is a dream to shift with. It's Very light and has great looks. Setup needs a little time, but once set up, everything shifts great.
And with a nice price!
I have dealt with a lot of bike shops in the UK and in the USA but have never found a shop that offers such competitive prices as well as efficient service. I emailed a inquiry about a product and revived a quick response on the arrival date of the product, the delivery of my product was also very quick.
I have recommended Merlin Cycles to all of my friends and they are already starting to order of you guys.
Great work, you need a shop in Australia!
who needs electric gear shifting when the mechanical system works so well, and is a lot lighter, well done Sram, a joy to use.
having ridden my bike with the SRAM RED groupset for the first time I knew that I'd bought the right product. The operation of every single gear change is precise and never faltered. The feel that you are using equipment that is only to give you pleasure to use.
Awesome groupset. Works perfectly. Couldn't ask for better.
