    Light component groupos - options?

    I currently have the Rival component group on my bike and I was wondering how much weight I could drop by going to a lighter (and thus more expensive) groupo? How does Rival compare to Red and Force. The reason I ask is because I have checked out Sram's web site and yet it seems a little tough to directly compare numbers.

    Another thought would be can I swap out certain Rival parts for lighter Red or Force parts?

    I appreciate any information you can provide - thank you.

    you'll have to add up weights and figure it out. yes, you can swap parts no problem. they are all compatible w/ each other.
