Default Sram Apex upgrade to Red advice needed

Hi,

Currently my groupset is Apex compact set 50/34T 110 165mm crankset gxp , 11-32 PG1050 cassette n Apex FD/RD

Do I need any specific request for my Red Sram 2013 5 pc groupset plus I'm planning to use Qrings n 3d crankset

One of the dealer email this info

Rotor 3D Compact 165mm Crank Set, 110 BCD
Rotor Q Rings Compact Set 50t/34t, 110 BCD

Sram Bottom Bracket GXP ( if you are using this bottom. Bracket with the rotor crankset then you will need a rotor bottom bracket as the SRAM GXP will not work with the rotor spindle. So this quote includes the rotor English bottom bracket)

============================

2013 Sram Red Yaw Front Derailleur

2013 Sram Red Aero Glide Rear Derailleur

2013 Sram Red XG 1090 Powerdome Cassette (what ratio to get?)

2013 Sram Red Ergo Shifters

I don't think the Red rear derailleur will accommodate an 11-32 cassette, but unless you are riding up a 35% slope you don't need anything like 34x32 . So you will need to get a new cassette - I suggest 11-27 would work well with compact to give you a pretty soft bailout gear. Don't bother getting the Red cassette ($300) save yourself heaps by getting a Force one ($100)- only difference is about 50g or something equally immaterial. Remember to get a new chain when you get the cassette. Good luck!!!

Need this rear der if you want to keep the 11-32.

Don't need a new crank if you just want to use 'Q' rings..

Why red? You would get the same performance with a wee weight penalty with Force or even Rival.

Force levers

Red FD(better than Force...but still not 'there')

Q rings

Force wifli RD for the 11-32

Use a shimano 11-32 and chain also...
