Strengths:    Easy to mount, adjust, lighter than 105, great shifting, great price, 32 tooth casette, solid feel thanks to mostly alloys used

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Seriously underrated group. I started with 105, the upgraded my supersix to ultegra, which came with apex. Then decided to build a rain/training/crit bike from all extras and used this apex wifli group. It has been fantastic. Hoods are comfortable and easy to get level, shifting is precise and reliable. When you shift, it clicks each time. Easy to adjust position of brakes and shifter lever to exactly where you want, front deraileur performs better than my ultegra. I don't see any problems with this group or the need to upgrade to anything higher. Sure, and its not a fair comparison to ultegra, but performance difference is so marginal. Though I am partial to shimano, apex is better value and performance than 105. I will hang on to it, why not have both.

I found that when I push the paddle the opposite direction, there is a small click and the ... Read More »

However, searching now I find that Apex is more expensive than 105 (Apex £400ish, 105 £360ish) Is this beca ... Read More »

Rear Derailleur (Apex) Barrel Adjuster Question

So last night as I was leaving from a stop sign I caught my foot on something in the derailleur cable area section of my bike (yeah I don't know how that happened). After that I noticed my shifting was getting pretty iffy, all symptoms of having too much cable tension. I went to adjust the barrel ad ... Read More »

Swapping SRAM APEX 11-32t cassette for something more conventional

What steps would I have to take to swap out my cassette to something with a more conventional gear spacing.
