Sram Rival

Thought I got a good deal on a group of Sram Force components but because of the seller’s mistake I ended up receiving a set of Sram Rival… =(

Nothing against the rival group though,  It feels quite good and everything looks to be built very solidly. The shifters still have the nice Sram characteristic POP in its actuation, which I like.  The jockey wheel bearings for the R.D. leave a little bit to be desired but that can be because of age and can be changed out cheaply.

I did take the chance to weigh everything too.  Each component weighs a bit heavier than the equivalent Force component… marketing…
