    Micro SIMs look suspiciously like normal SIMs only with slightly less of the pointless plastic. Don't be scared, I'll be cutting mine blindfolded with a carving knife. It'll still work

    If you are moving the brake lever when shifting then that might be the problem - shifting is totally independent of the brake lever with SRAM, you go both up and down with a Campag style paddle behind the brake lever.

    My calipers don't change gear for me, just as my derailleur doesn't provide braking. Each thing should have one job, and one job alone.

    Also a major let down is the lack of multiple shifts.

    SRAM is rubbish and anyone who rides it with pride needs their head checking..

    Sorry, but I've never liked SRAM, and never will. Predominantly it's the obvious let down of the shifting type. Campag designed and patented the best and most ergonomic design. Shimano got in there with the second best alternative and SRAM have had to take what was left. Shifting at all with a brake lever is plain wrong, but both up and down is just awful.

    Also the shift feels terrible, so clunky and heavy. I don't like it. My only positive is that a fall left the right lever 'popped out' of its position which was easy to get back in.

    I will be burning the SRAM from the disco the moment the new fully hydraulic DI2 cross system comes out next year.

    As some of you chumps may know I bought the dirty disco and raced it at Muddy Hell and Rapha Supercross at Ally Pally the same weekend.

    I have been nothing but blown away with it. It's almost as light as my campag carb/ti groupset'd tune mig maged cervelo.

    The wheels (not the carbon ones) stodd up well to both races and haven't deformed at all.

    My only problem is that shit groupset
