    Sram Red Front Derailer

    First time Sram user, is it normal for them to have a loud pop when down shifting?
    If not what is wrong with mine.

    Never personally used sram on any of my bikes, but I have found them to be extremely mechanical and raw sounding. Question for you: is the popping sound coming from the shifter or the derailleur?

    As a Sram red user I can say that the actual FD makes no sound at all but the shifters certainly make a distinctive clicking noise, I guess it could be described as a pop noise also.
    But you do know you have made a shift!

    It may not be fancy but it gets me were I need to go.
