Just posting a request for advice on which groupset I should consider out of either:
Shimano: Tiagra or 105
Sram: Apex or Rival
Can't filter out the best one but someone must know.
On a seperate note, which frame is more suited to racing: The Ribble sportive Racing or the Ribble Stealth.
And which gruppo will work best for my mid range Ribble Frame intended for racing and as a quick, maintenance low, easy to use, light, snappy machine.
Back in December we did a First Ride report on the new SRAM Apex groupset. At the time, we liked it. Move on two months and we've done a bunch more miles on the Apex-equipped test bike, and we still like it. We like it a lot, in fact.
SRAM's S900 brake lever is something a bit different. It's not often you get to see a brake-only lever for a road bike these days, they're all modern fancy units filled with all sorts of gear-changing trickery, but there's a small but significant army of fixed (the ones that use brakes at least), one-gear and (even if SRAM label these as a 'singlespeed' lever) a bunch of bike riders that use down-tube and bar-end shifters that don't need or want a brake-and-gear combo.
