I've had my latest bike for 2 years now and it came with SRAM Red groupset and SRAM S40 wheels. I have found the SRAM product to very good and have had no trouble in using or maintaining the various components. I have noticed that when someone posts on this site for advice re which wheels or groupset to go with that SRAM rarely gets a mention. I haven't had much experience with the other brands at an equivalent level but am interested in why SRAM doesn't get recommended all that often. I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts as I'm getting a bit paranoid! I don't intend to start a discussion about which is best but does SRAM stack up against the other brands?
yeah its not bad on the appearance front. Its pretty sporty looking. The Ultegra crank/chain ring reminds me of an elephant trunk. Its a bit weird. All the other Ultegra gear looks and works fine for me.
Exactly my thoughts too Shav - not a fan of Ultegra Crankset - which was one of the reasons I went with SRAM
