- New bike
- 2012 SRAM RED BLACK compact groupset (chain and cassette are 2012 force)
- Front mech is conventional parrallel movement (ie: no yaw like the other RED mechs...this threw me at first)
- I have installed and adjusted loads of front mechs, so done the usual with height/alignment/limits/cable tension.
The problem is shifting up to the big ring. After 4 hours in my work stand it went into the local shop who are SRAM dealers and even they can’t get it set up to work well. It shifts, just very poorly/laboured.
Cable routing is good and cables running smoothly (it's new)
I know loads of people run a compact, but it’s a big jump for the chain to make between rings and there doesn’t appear to be many ramps on the big ring to assist the pick up.
Any suggestions as I'm pissed off I can't get this top end groupset to work.
