Perhaps. But say a used pair ot 2013 for 250 and new for a stretch over 300. Problem is import taxes and shipping etc from the US usually makes them quite expensive anyway. I really like the ergonomics of SRAM, had the full 2013 RED on my previous bike. Would really want at least the shifters on my next bike I'm building :)

Where can you get a set of the ergodynamic Red shifters, NEW, for a bit over 300?

OP, 2013 Force is old Red with Force graphics, and it's even possible to find just the right lever on Ebay. This would be the preferable option for me.

How about some details to actually make your comment helpful?

Personally I would head over to your LBS and see if SRAM will warranty it. SRAM warranty service has always been superb for me.

On a side note I recently sold a pair of used first gen Red shift levers on ebay for slightly over $200.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I had the same failure on a 2009 force right shifter (woven carbon lever rather than uni, different graphics). Is there any way to fix this? Can I use the guts of a rival shifter, or just directly swap in red internals, paddle and everything? Where to get parts other than surfing eBay for crashed shifters? Thanks!

Warranty wise Sram has been great with me. Had broken the lever in the FD shifter. Brought it to my LBS and my buddy spoke with Sram which yielded them giving me a brand new set of updated shifters with Zero Loss on Force.
