Strengths:    Powerful

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I bought these for a project bike to save money. I was attracted to the Swissstop pads used at the Apex level. I was originally thinking of going with Rival or Force but if you consider the design is nearly identical; then there is no reason to go with those. The only difference I could see was about 30 grams of weight, and when it comes to brakes there is not much in the way of technology. If you are one of those people that gives a crap about keeping up with what the person next to you is using-they are not for you. In short, they are brakes. They work well for the price and I am happy. Well worth the money and really all that matters with a brake system is mostly in the design and having good pads. These have both.

Weight of 12' Masi Evoluzione Apex?

SRAM Apex crank bolt creaking

After a few weeks of trial and error, I think I've figured out the reason for my excessive BB creaking to be the tension bolt on the non-drive side crank arm on my Apex crankset. I have to torque it down past the recommended spec, but it quiets down when I do. Then I'll ride for a while and it'll ... Read More »

Any help would be greatly appreciated: 1) Is there a better deal with SRAM on it at this price? 2) ... Read More »

Apex Derailleur -----> Dura Ace 7900

My Trek Speed Concept came with Apex components and it shifts okay... but coming from a 105 drive train, a bit clunky in comparison. So I've been thinking about drive train upgrades and I'm to the derailleur. Was thinking about using a Force or Red but the Dura Ace seems to be awesome and a decent ... Read More »

Cannondale Supersix 6 Apex

[COLOR=#000000]Anybody ridden the Supersix 6 with Apex? I think it is from 2012, MSRP $2220. I'm looking at one locally and the seller will let it go for $1200. Seller says that it was ridden less than 100 miles. Have not seen the bike in person yet so it is hard to say if this is true, but the whit ... Read More »
