I posted this in SRAM sub forum also but don't know how much traffic it gets so I'm trying here also. Hope that's not a major faux pas.

I'm looking at a couple of used bikes, one has 2009 rival another has 2011 rival. Let's assume roughly same mileage and usage and maintenance performed. Are there any major differences? Is the 2011 better because of features, materials, reliability, endurance, etc. or are they the same? Any known issues with either group?
Thanks for your opinions.

The earlier version of Rival an Force shifter had this nasty habit of breaking the rear shifter. I'd go with the 2011.
