    SRAM 2012 Red Manuals

    I've recently taken delivery of a new bike equipped with a 2012 SRAM Red group. I'm loving these components, but I haven't been able to find anything in the way of technical or service manuals for them. The supplied "user" manuals are profoundly useless for anything more that a very basic pictorial idea of how things fit together.

    Does anyone have any idea where I might find more detailed technical type manuals? I've searched the SRAM web site without any luck.

    Thanks,
    Bert

    Thanks. Looks interesting. I just wonder how helpful the 2010 manual will be for a 2012 Red group. I imagine the basics will be pretty similar, but things like the 'yaw' FD include some pretty significant changes. I'll go ahead and print it out to see what I can glean from it

    The 2012 Red is a little different from the 2010/2011 versions - especially with the FD. The 2012 Red FD has "Yaw" which eliminates the trim function. FD alignment is made using "setup lines" on the FD cage.

    Unfortunately there is no technical documentation for the 2012 Red (yet). It only comes in the form of video tutorials.

    Thanks. I saw the video tutorials on SRAM's site, and they are helpful, but not the sort of thing you can easily set down on the workbench as a real time guide while in the midst of some operation or another. Let's hope they get around to some tech docs soon.
