Though i'm very concerned that the S900 crank it self will not meet my requirements. I'm not a big and heavy rider, but i'm doing very serious racing and my concern is if it will be stiff enough. Of course there's a weight penalty but that seems unavoidable (as i don't wan't to go StageOne)
So any thoughts on the S900 crank?
And extras: How well does the SRAM Aero chainring shift with the new Red-group?
Now; as a 175 lb rider with a decent kick, I've run old red, force, new red, s900, ultegra, 105, and about to try some specialized cranks. I can assure you the difference in stiffness between all the SRAM crank arms I've tries is extremely minute - in most cases I can't even notice any flex. The s900 is at least on par with old red.
As for the shifting of the new rings... its fantastic. I'm wanting a more stealth big ring on my wilier but it just shifts so well!
If you don't experience much flex in the crankarm itself, i probably won't experience any!
The chainring i thought of was this: http://www.sram.com/sram/road/products/chain-rings - Any idea wether it shift well with the new Red Yaw FD? On the old Red all of the pros used the aero chainring, but according to SRAM they recommend using only the new Red Chainring with the Yaw derailleur - So how well does it actually shift?

Honestly, the new YAW fd works so well that you'd be hard pressed to fault the front shifting on most rings as compared to the new Red rings... but they do shift just a hair better than other rings I've tried to date with the new fd
Still haven't tried Praxis or stronglight though
So for another question: Considering this P2M ( http://www.power2max.de/shop_details.php?artikelid=4 ) i'm wondering if the newer SRAM S900 2013 will fit? Is there a difference in shape and form that won't allow the P2M to fit? The customer service of P2M won't answer me.

no the power2max spider will not fit the the new s900 this is the only s900 that the p2m will fit.
As my team will be SRAM sponsered i'd have to run either a SRAM-crank or an unbranded crank. The price of P2M seems really attractive, but that dosen't really matter if i have to spend a small fortune on getting the crank repainted (taping is not an option it's too ugly)
But have anyone here had experience with the Bor RR688 ( http://www.power2max.de/shop_details.php?artikelid=7" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; )
