    SRAM Force Double Tap 9 Speed

    Greetings,

    I am about to get a hold of a used cross bike with a broken right shifter. It has a 9 speed drivetrain with all SRAM Force component. Will the current 10 speed SRAM Force shifters widely available on ebay work?

    What can i do to replace the broken right shifter?

    thanks

    Eric

    That means I have to replace the rear derailleur, cassette, both shifters and possibly the crankset as well?

    There is no such thing. When SRAM road components came into our world they started w/ 10 speed. You can trust me on this.

    Interesting, that's what i understood from - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRAM_C...SRAM_groupsets

    But the guy that owns the bike told me its a 9 speed so I am confused.

    Seriously...why are you confused? You've looked it up on the interwebs, I've told you there is no such thing. Try to find 9 speed SRAM Force. I'll be waiting while you look. In '06 I worked for the first American pro road team that used SRAM. They were involved w/ lots of development work. When we built the first bikes that year SRAM bought us Dura Ace because their stuff wasn't ready for the real world yet. A couple months later we got the first parts (shifters and derailleurs...there were no SRAM cassettes or chains yet, can't remember about brakes) and did the first of multiple rebuilds over the course of that year. I'm intimately familiar w/ this stuff...there is not nor never has been any 9 speed SRAM road group. This guy you're buying a bike from can't count. Not as common as people that have no clue about spelling or grammar but it happens.

    My pleasure. And so you know...if you ever need or want to get a new rear derailleur you can use any road derailleur that SRAM has ever made. 10 or 11 speed. You can use a YAW front derailleur as well, but it's a little harder to dial in w/ the older 10 speed shifters. The old Force front derailleurs worked great.

    Thanks again for the information. Will the RED and Rival shifters work with SRAM Force components?

    ANY 10 speed shifter will work w/ ANY derailleur regardless of 10 or 11.
