Does the job, but beware single-use warning

This quick-link works exactly as intended. However, SRAM says you are only supposed to "unlock" it once and then throw it away. This can be used in a pinch if you break your chain out on a ride, which is why I carry it with me in my kit, but the idea that it is disposable is ridiculous. There are reusable ones made by other manufacturers, and I don't understand why SRAM doesn't do the same except for making money. I wax my chains, and have reusable quick links to make putting on and taking off chains easy. I don't think most people are even aware that SRAM designates this as single use.

Work like a charm, even in 2X12

Every year now, there's less & less juice in my legs and even 9% grade longer than a few hundreds meter was a peine with 46-33. I did not want to switch to 1x so i wanted to try SRAM Red axs XPLR derailleur SRAM 12 speed XPLR 10-44T cassette which i ordered from Bike Tires Direct. After installing and fine tuning in my garage, next day i went out to try it. OMG, what a joy. It worked like a charm. Shifting so smooth that it's so hard to hear it. That 9% grade climb look like no grade at all now. So to be clear, after reading so much on internet, SRAM Red XPLR derailleur with XPLR 12 speeds 10-44T cassette for me work very good with 2x12, crank 46/33. So normal ride on the road 46 front and 10 rear. As the grade increase, down shifting all the way to 44 and if needed, down shit to small crank 33. Every thing work so good. I actually down shift to 33 crank when i am on 38 or even 32 on cassette.

Now at 78, I am not afraid anymore from the mountains of any grade. I have ordered 2 more of that cassettes (i have 2 road and mountain bike has 10-52).

Bike Tires Direct was and is like always, very helpful and friendly when you need it.

BEEFY!

These are thick! Love the stopping power these give. Also the floating rotor design helps prevent heat warping while under heavy braking load. SRAM has it going on with these rotors.

Matches the original hoods from the Force22 brake set.

These hoods are a direct replacement for the original hoods that came with the Force22 brake set. Unfortunately, I think the right-hand hood is subject to routine splitting because the double-tap mechanism pushes against the rubber, stretching it, when shifting to lower gears with the rear derailleur; over time it wears out and splits. I've gone through several right-hand hoods with different bake sets over the years (both Red and Force) because of this.

Installation tips: heat the hoods with a hair dryer to make them more pliable and use a bit of gentle fast-drying lubricant (I used little bit of 96% alcohol) to make sliding them over the brakes easier.
