Question about Sram Red

1 Answer

Slow and tight Sram red Crank

Hi! I just got my pinarello dogma frame and i'm trying to put on a sram red group. I use the Sram GXP but when i tighten the crankbolts the crank won't rotate at all. It might seem like i'm missing som spacers between the driveside crank and the bottom bracket but i have checked the manual and all the videos i can find on youtube, but I can't seem to figure out whats wrong. Please help me.

I'm sorry, but if you don't know how to order the correct BB or properly install it you should not be building a bike from scratch, as this is probably the first of many problems you will have. As for YouTube it's not a reliable source of technical info. Try this site: http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help
OR Contact the frame seller and find out what BB the frame takes or contact the seller of the BB and ask for assistance.

SOURCE: replacing Attack's rear derailleur cable

Stop everything! Do not take the shifter apart! Go to the rear derailleur and look where the cable is attached. There is a bolt with an allen key head, it is an 8mm. Losen off the bolt. REFER TO PARKTOOL.COM

If it won't pedal you probably have a broken bottom bracket. This needs to be done in a bicycle repair shop as you need the right tools to disassemble it.You will also need the exact replacement parts as they come packaged with the kit and diagrams for installation. Sorry I'm not more help.

SOURCE: on my ROAD bike could a Sram/Truvati XX or XO

To use Sram Red Shifters with such a wide range rear cassette requires a Sram 10-speed MTB rear derailleur such as an XX or X.0, it will work without problems with your red shifter.

Because it is a road bike, i suggest leaving the road crankset and front derailleur in place. If you need low gearing I suggest a compact front crankset.

If you need to use a mtb crankset, attept to use the road front derailluer with it.

The front derailer on my sram red compact just wont change quick!


Which brand of shifters are you using? A SRAM derailleur won't work with Shimano shifters and vice-versa.

So - first; if you are using SRAM shifters with the Red derailleur - then changing to Shimano will not solve your issue but only make it worse.

If however you have Shimano shifters - then this is a good solution.
The Red derailleur should not shift that poorly with SRAM shifters. It is not the best - but it's not bad. If I had the bike in a repair stand I would be looking carefully at the following after affirming that the shifting system was indeed all SRAM:


  • Derailleur cage height relative to the large chanring - should be a maximum of 2 mm
  • Derailleur cage should be aligned as close to parallel to the rings as possible
  • Derailleur upper and lower limit screws should be adjusted within spec and in order to allow the derailleur to travel the correct amount for ideal shifting
  • Derailleur cable tension should be correct.


Hope this helps... Let me know if you need more.
