Anybody have feedback or see any pitfalls on using 110BDC stronglight C2 rings on a previous generation red crankset in combination with the new 2012 red FD?

Thanks,

2013 SRAM Red has not come out yet.

Did you mean 2012?

Hey, it helps everyone when there is less misinformation out there. That includes mis-labeling things. Some people like to search and read, you know. :wink:

Just ordered a 2012 Red FD with my CT2 chainring on my hollowgram crank a few days ago. I will let you know how it performs.

Speaking to the SRAM rep at the Multisport Expo in NYC earlier this year, the spacing on the new cranks is different (slightly bigger between the rings). He said that you can ride the new FD on standard ring formats, both 110 and 130, without incident but that you wouldn't get the full benefit of no chain rub if you were not using the new Red cranks.

Local bikeshop is suggesting a new Red front derailleur with my SRAM force groupset.

Be interested in the consensus on this one

I run CT2's with 36/52T chainrings on a 110BCD red BB30 crank. Works great.
