What does it all mean Stanley?

I don't know what I'm looking for. Different angles and movement. So what? Spell it out for me please? What did that comparison tell me?

First let me get my puppets out.

Less movement in the deraileur body means better shifting control. Means the upper pulley is staying put. Upper pully keeps the chain on track where it should be on the cassete. Lower pulley takes slack out of the chain.

So....Sram good, Shimano bad?

Got it :wink:

Thanks for the show. The price of admission was quite reasonable I might add.

I wouldn't say Shimano is bad, but Sram seems to have something going here. I've had good luck with Shimano all of my riding years. Sure I've gone through some parts, broken, bent, or otherwise, but that's gonna happen when you beat the $hit out of them.

In the likely event that I invest in a bicycle with shifting capabilities in the future, it will be built with Sram. I wanna try it out, plus I have a friend that works there. I don't get a discount, but I don't think she'd be working there if she didn't believe in the product. Her stable of bikes rivals anyone's that I know, including Jason Teggatz, and I think she has Sram on all of them.
