    SRAM Rival / Force "changelog"

    Can anyone provide a concise change log of what changed with Rival and / or Force since, say, 2009 (inclusive).

    I think the design has remained relatively the same with them shaving off 5-20 grams each year. They did switch from woven to unidirectional carbon weave for the Force brifters/crankset starting in 2010. Also, they redesigned their crappy bottom bracket for 2011.

    So, these GXP BB's are pretty junky? Relatively junky or just junky overall?

    I have no experience with them at all. I only have these old cup and cone deals. . . so. . . yeah. Thanks.

    I was thinking about grabbing an S900. . .
