    1 - if they're the wrong size, adding cream will be like adding cutting fluid to metal - it'll soften up your skin and make things worse.

    ouch. the cage should come as a kit with pulleys and bolts but good luck finding one. reach out to a sram dealer and try to order it by the part #. that's your best bet with sram replacement parts.

    you know, the srams are somewhat heavy but I do like them. they're basically scaled down 404/808 clinchers. they also are reasonably priced (i paid 1100). I use them in crits more often than anything...
