SRAM RED pricing info
Suggested retail of $2142
Here's what Red will cost you when it becomes available this fall: The whole group price, paired with SRAM's PC-1090R 10-speed chain, which Red shares with Force, will cost $2142. Here's the breakdown.
Shifters: $555 280-grams
Front Derailleur $108 58-grams (braze on only)
Rear Derailleur$311 153-grams
Brake Set$297 265-grams
Crankset $370 750-grams (with bottom bracket)
Bottom Bracket $195
Cassette$230 155-grams (11-23)
Chain $76 255-grams
Campagnolo RECORD: $1749
(Highest I could find. Availabe for $1549 in the US.)
So SRAM RED comes in at a claimed weight of 1928g roughly 357g lighter than RECORD but at a price of $393-593 more!
Sure street prices will come down around mid 2008, but from what I hear, SRAM is sticking to thier guns when it comes to enforcing pricing. So we will see in time.
I hope they fixed their brake and RD issues from FORCE at this pricing...
Like like the shifters, but I hate the Truvative cranks!
The cassette look like the most interesting part of the group.
Also thier $76 chain is a JOKE!
I am a huge SRAM fan on the MTB side so....
There are also RED Flat-Bar 10spd 3x9 shifters coming based on the X.0 Trigger design. Can you say 10sp MTB???
