SRAM for shifters / rear derailleur, chain and cassette
Shimano for front derailleur and crankset / BB (Hollowtech II)
also like SRAM's Avid hydraulic brakes (Juicy's a while back and more recently different flavours of Elixir)
but never liked SRAM / Truvativ cranksets?
my 1 month old 2012 Stumpy Evo is off the road - the SRAM 1250S crankset and PF30 BB are back at Fishers for 'warranty inspection'
after the driveside bearing failed and the crankset started clicking / creaking and working loose after 4 mild XC rides..
used Shimano HT2 (mainly SLX) for years with no issues to speak of, ever?
one thing about SRAM in the UK, their service / warranty department at Fishers is top notch, compared to Madison which can be somewhat 'slow' and vague..and seem to "credit" the shop's account rather than send things back fixed or replaced?
had an issue with my RS Reverb seatpost, and Fishers had it back to me within 4 days of posting
