Quick, dumb SRAM questions, that Google won't give me a straight answer to:
How well do mechanical SRAM groupsets play together? Would I have problems with, say, Force 22 mechanical/ hydraulic shifters, Rival derailleurs and brake calipers, and Red crankset?
Is it true that the primary difference between Rival and Force is the shape of the hoods? And that Force and Red have the same shape hoods?
If I'm used to Shimano 2x, and love SRAM 1x, am I going to be shocked by the front shifting if I ever get to ride SRAM 2x?
I got to test ride a couple of bikes with Rival 1x, and love the shifting, and I got to feel the hoods (but not ride) a bike with Red (not sure the exact version, the guy at the bike shop said if I get Force or Red shifters that's what they would be shaped like). If I can get the Red hood shape then I think what I want on my dream bike is Force shifters, and whatever other parts I can get my hands on that will play nice together to make a Rival/ Force/ Red 22 mechanical hydraulic groupset.
