Nice choice! Are you still dumping Sram? I currently have SiSL2s with a Quarq spider and Sram Exogram chainrings. Let me know how praxis rings work out for you. Not sure if I'm staying with Sram or moving to Shimano yet..

I've got SRAM Force on my CX bike and mostly X0 on my MTB. I actually really like the SRAM mechanical group, but have Di2 on both my road bike and TT bike. I lived in Chicago for years and knew guys that worked for SRAM. Ironically, I now live in Irvine, which is where the Shimano HQ is for North America. Both companies put out great products, and the competition just makes things better for us end users...;)

BTW, my wife has SRAM Red on her road bike and she loves it. She has small hands and the levers are very adjustable. Then again, she has Shimano mechanical on her TT bike.

No issues with using the King PF30 BB with Hollowgrams? My BB hasn't come in yet but I was wondering if that plastic sleeve would be a problem; I know the Hollowgram spindle spacers are expected to butt right up against the bearing.

When My bike was new last year, the Chris King was the fix after 3 days. Glad it worked for you also.
Let's finish the ride with a 20% grade.
