I'm currently trying to figure out how to put together a stealth build that includes SRAM shifting for an Allez frame.
Please tell me what you think about this component selection (compatibility problems, bang for buck etc):
- SRAM Red shifters, FD YAW and RD.
- SRAM Force BB, and maybe also the cassette-- BTW, does anyone know the difference between say, 11-23 and 11-23T?
- Shimano 105 brake calipers and crankset (perhaps also the cassette)
- KMC X10SL DLC chain
I would like not to spend too much on a crank/cassette combination for now, since I'm new to road bikes, and so I prefer to try combinations on a somewhat cheaper Shimano setup, which locally, happens to be much more readily available, too.
If you have any opinions or suggestions, please let me know!
