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.

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 »

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 »
