Strengths:    Clean crisp shifting.
Much lighter than the triple with greater range of gears.


Weaknesses:    Once I get it fine tuned there will probably be none.

Bottom Line:   
I just replaced the triple that came with my Felt F90 (which was replaced with an F55 after a chainstay broke).
I have the 50/34 11/32 combination.

My bike now feels much lighter and shifts are much crisper. With the new compact setup I have been able to do all my local rides in the large chainring while staying in the middle range of the cassette during most of the ride.

I haven't tried any really steep climbs yet but I feel that this new setup will make them much easier.

The only issue I have noticed is that the rear derailleur does not keep the correct gear in the middle of the cassette. I'm going to have this fine tuned by a shop soon.

I am otherwise very happy with this new arrangement. Its probably the best purchase I have made in my more than 30 years of riding.

Since I bought this from Quickshipper.com I saved at least $400.00 on the group including the bb.

Weight of 12' Masi Evoluzione Apex?

Just curious to know what these weighed stock. I've made considerable changes and am looking for comparison. Thanks in advance. BrandonRead More »

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 »

Windsor Falkirk/Apex - Better deals?

Hi, I'm a returning biker but consider me a newbie I guess. I've searched for opinions on the brand, model etc and couldn't really find specifically what I was looking for so I have a few questions. 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 »
