    Sponsers come and go. Sram wanted to do less teams and support with not only components but wheels, stems, handlebars, seatposts.

    Maybe Cavendish secretly works for Shimano or Campy.

    Surprised to read this. A couple years ago when I joined this forum sram was the end all be all.

    There was a revolt. Some people are even saying Mich P4Rs are better than Conti. Dogs and cats living together!

    I run this on one of my bikes.

    I have thrown chains before, but only due to misadjusted or bent components.

    Andy is Andy...he dropped his chain with Di2 in the Tour de Suisse.

    Chains will drop...no matter what system you're using.

    Was that same race that Cancellara had an issue at the start of the TT? Never trust a robot.

    Well said. Maybe their mechanics suck. No problems from my end.

    Cav....give me a call dude.

    Keep in mind that Cav's experience and input with Zipp wheels have led to a re-design of the rear hub for this year. Zipp is owned by SRAM.

    Of course, they could have asked me, and I could have told them the same thing just by looking at them. Maybe they should consult me about their flexy chainring problems.

    Honestly I would not be surprised that the problem was due to sram. Sram in general is a bit of a hit and miss. Some of their stuff is absolutely awesome and some is just... you know, bad...

    Take Avid brakes for example. The Avid elixir line is the worst hydraulic brake line known to man. Even no name shimano hydraulics beat the best avid in power and functionality.
    Then take the double tap shifter which is totally awesome. And XX1. And the high end cassettes. And Rock Shox in general.

    If they could be as consistent as shimano they would dominate the bike world. Shimano rarely is the best (except maybe in road tech) but they are very high up consistently even with their lower end products.

    My SRAM Force chain has come off a couple times too. Looking into a chain catcher aluminium thingy, only $20 I think.

    That being said, my 105 chain also came off from my FD. I think I just have bad luck.

    I think the N-gear jump stop or whatever it's called that I bought was more like $10.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I would think SRAM wouldn't be thrilled with Cav's comments!? Sounds like he has complained about SRAM to management, to no avail - so he's being a squeaky wheel in the press?

    Cav goes to races to win. If you're gear is holding him back you're not his sponsor you're in his way.

    I think that's also one of the factors why he left SKY is because he wanted to ride SPECIALIZED (since he had so many success/wins with their bike ).

    I think that was a factor just not the main one.

    Agreed. Sky is in it for the GC, not sprint wins. Cav wants a consistent lead out. I'm also guessing with the other big names on Sky there might have been a bit more money available at OPQ.

    I seriously doubt he left Sky because of the brand of bike sponsor.

    On a side note, I may be wrong but I think he did better with Scott than Specialized. He also *****ed about the Venge on at least one occasion.

    He left because he wanted to win sprints not get bottles for Wiggins and Froome. But yes according to sources in pro cycling the fact that OPQS uses specialized was a factor in choosing them.
