Strengths:    Excellent shifting

Weaknesses:    The front derailleur snapped on a downshift. The two welds that hold the derailleur to the braket just snapped. Clearly this is a design problem as my Cannondale SRAM Red has only 500 miles!

Bottom Line:   
Perhaps in their zeal to cut weight the designers at Cannondale have sacrificed strength. My other bike is a12 year old TREK OCLV with Dura Ace Gruppo and never have had an incident such as this.

Strengths:    light weight

Weaknesses:    Cage has to much flex causing unreliable shifting. Don't even think about shifting under load on a hill!

Bottom Line:   
The cage on this derailleur is crap! It has to much flex and wears fast when the chain rubs due to no trim on the big front gear. I had to replace derailleur after one year. Pro teams insisted on a different cage on their front derailleurs. They must know something the rest of us don't!

Strengths:    Lightweight

Weaknesses:    Shifting action not as responsive as Dura Ace, and cage is prone to breaking

Bottom Line:   
Broke my brand new 2008 SRAM Red front derailleur on a downshift. There's a weld on top of the cage is came apart. Don't know if SRAM fixed this design, but it is definitely inferior construction/design.

Shifting is also not as firm as Dura Ace. Stiffness is sacrificed with the lighter ti material on the Red. I'm going back to Dura Ace on my front derailleur.

Sram Red 11 speed yaw front derailleur

Just wondering what the difference is between the 10 and 11 speed yaw front derailleur? I'm sure the cage is narrower on the 11 speed. I wanted to order the 10 speed but the supplier I deal with only has the 11 speed in stock. 10 speed won't be in stock until later in the month. Would the 11 spee ... Read More »

where to attach front derailleur housing for SRAM Red FD ?

I'm stumped here ... the cable attachment bolt is obvious on the FD. But the cable's housing needs to push against another solid place in order to overcome the spring's tension. Where do I attach the housing? For their RD, the housing has a specific hole to go into and the cable emerges, without ... Read More »

SRAM Red Front Derailleur Loss of Tension

So this has been a frustrating issue for a while now and all avenues to correct it so far have failed. I bought a Stevens SLR last year as a frame set and fitted it with a 2011 SRAM Red groupset, it has as per frame requirements a braze on front derailleur. The frame has internal cable routing with ... Read More »
