Hi, I am checking out the 2010 Fuji Cross Pro, the 2010 uses SRAM Rival..
but the guys at performance bike couldn't put it properly together and I could not shift the front onto big ring unless my rear cog is on the small. And it grinds and take a long time. I have to push the lever to 4 o clock position almost, the front shifter basically feels like broken plastic. But evidently this is improperly put together as I notced the uneven threads on the stem and handle bar. The top brake level also drag the other cable when pulled.
I am definitely not going to buy from that store but should I give the Rival component another chance, or look for one with Shimano components?
I feel 105 (click and forget) is much better but I thought the Rival is supposed to be a higher class component.
The Moto Fantom Cross Pro is almost the same exact bike except for the wheels and downtube shape and I could get a better bike shop to assemble it for me.. that could be one option or I check another PB that hopefully have better assembly skills.
