    Hopefully not for a long time.

    Although I wouldn't mind seeing a Red cassette with a 12t

    Red that's...uhh...yellow, or is it black? The cost of parts has made me think long and hard about swapping anything but the good news is that it all works well. Multiple bikes and incompatibility are my issues. There'd be a real market methinks for gizmos that make inchangeable bits less complicated and that work just as well. Ninespeed was as close as it got imo.

    Also a 13 tooth would be nice for those of us who aren't as fast as we used to be. In fact a 53x13 is still a pretty big gear, don't you think?
    Good cyclists are:
    Visible, Predictable, Alert, Assertive and Courteous

    They also use the five layers of protection available.
    Layer 1: Control your bike
    Layer 2: Know and follow the rules of the road
    Layer 3: Ride in the smartest lane position
    Layer 4: Manage hazards skillfully
    Layer 5: Utilize passive protection.

    im with you. anyone use uses an 11t cassette is delusional... the 12 is still too big a gear for anyone here except maybe a half dozen guys.

    hint- you go slower when you drop it into the 11 or 12.

    Cool, so Red now looks like the Rival stuff that it is virtually indistinguishable from on a functional basis. Other than the shifters....

    Apparently Black is the new Red. I prefer the looks of my current Red.

    Some pros, notably Andy Schleck, swapped out standard sized derailleur pulleys for larger ones on the theory that the bigger diameter improved shifting performance. The pulleys on the Black derailleur appeared to be standard size. Or could this just be a cosmetic variation to the Red group?
    anybody other than me see a little irony in this?

    During a presentation by SRAM at a local bike shop - one which focused on how you could get low gears using their Apex group - their rep. seemed almost shocked when I asked for a cassette that started with something other than an 11T. They have since introduced a 12-32T cassette, but the last three sprockets are 21-24-32T. What were they thinking?
