Custom CX build questions
im about ready to pull the trigger on a custom cx bike and i have some component questions?
1. Can I run SRAM red Shifters, Crankset, and front derailleurs with SRAM XX1 cassette and rear derailleur all on a bike with disc brakes (avid bb7 sl)?
2. Can I run Shimano Alfine Di2 11-speed hub in the back with a shimano ultegra Di2 up front (shifter, crankset, and derailleur)? if so, what chain and brakes to go with?
Are you planning sanctioned races to compete in , or is this just a sports bike?
1, bb7 road is short pull made to be used with brifters, high MA in the lever..
[note TRP is about to release 2 new cable operated disc calipers]
SRAM is about to release an integrated in the brifter hydraulic brake.
&2) look around the Pro Race coverage of Last years UCI Race season, Di2 has already
made inroads there , in the sponsored racers gear.
it just sports bike. and yes i will be using brifters wherever possible.

As are the cable to hydraulic conversion ..
Just very recently, there is a Di2 for the Alfine 11, but its likely not compatible
with the road racing stuff, you are on your own on that ..
write to Shimano directly,
( local market for uberpremium bike parts, is near zero,
ordered for those with specific needs but not stocked on spec.. )
I just see some fancy stuff during the brief dry months, under tourists, riding the coast..
or city visitors from, like, PDX.
