One of the best entry level components
I made the switch to Sram a few years ago, when they were the only company offering wide range cassettes and compact chainsets for road bikes. Safe to say I've never looked back, I've run every combination from 11-34 coupled to a 53/39. And everything in between. This chain set is super stiff for the money but not too heavy. I've been able to make low end shimano ones flex and drop chains, and cause rub on the front derailleur, never with Sram though.
