The new SRAM Red group is going to take some time to get used to … not the shifting mechanism (I’ve never had any issues switching between different component groups that way), but the way the levers fit in my hand, the wider Q-factor underfoot. It’s weird, even the bars feel a bit wider, and I didn’t even swap them out. The stuff sure looks sexy, though … except for the barrel adjusters on the brakes, which are chunky plastic (but light, compared to the sexy aluminium ones on my old Record brakes).
