Last spring I stripped my Specialized Crux of it's Apex wi-fli gruppo and put it on my R3. All year long the FD would occasionally throw the chain off the big ring when shifting. By this I mean every 1 out of 10 shifts, but I got used to it and always knew I could fix it, but I just chose to ride it that way. This spring I had a Rotor 3D+ crank installed and had new FSA chainrings installed as well. New chain & cassette too. And here is the issue that is now causing a bit of confusion between 4 different mechanics. The Apex FD (pre-yaw) is now either not shifting the chain or throwing it off still. Now I know there are those of you out there saying right now that the mechs are not that good, find someone else, yada, yada, yada. And normally I would agree, but I did a Google search last night and while I know it's easy to be affirmed via the internet, there was a thread I found which makes me think that the model year Crux I had, had a bit of lemon when it came to the FD. I didn't Google Specialized Crud FD issues. I googled SRAM Apex FD issues and found a thread where a comment mention the FD on the Crux. SO I think I recall complaints about SRAM FDs pre yaw. Am I correct in that? Having once sold high end jewelry I understand how cost means nothing, because even the nicest, most expensive item can be a lemon, or to put it another way, you & your neighbor can have the same model car, you have no issues, theirs is in the garage each week. Okay that out of the way am I correct in remembering SRAM FD issues of not shifting good etc? A new FD is on order and that ought to solve it I hope. Anyway, low 60s today in NH, Paris Roubaix Live and a planned 40 miler so it's all good.
