Ok, so I wrecked my 6700 equipped CAAD9 last Sunday and picked up a replacement yesterday for a killer deal at my LBS. I had enjoyed 6700 but once I tried Force, I really don't think I want to go back. I just want to verify that this setup would work well enough until I can get the cash to get the rest of the Force stuff. These Tiagra levers are pissing me off and I forgot how tiny they are.
I googled this and found some mixed stuff (ranting about cable pull but I don't see how that affects the front). I'm 99% sure I'm ok but just wanted to make sure.
Ultegra 6700 cassette and chain
Ultegra 6650 crank (bent my 6700 arm and chipped the big ring)
Ultegra 6600 FD (kicked the 6700 and bent the cage)
If I can just get a thumbs up from a few of you that have experience with these guys, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to order the Force stuff today if possible.
