    Swaping drivetrains- SRAM to the CX bike and Shimano to the Road

    I have a question about swapping drivetrains from my CX bike to roadbike.

    I just picked up a C'dale CAADX disc ultegra. I also have a C'dale SuperSix with Rival. Both bikes are at my LBS right now while I am on vacation in Hawaii. I like the SRAM on my supersix just fine. I'm a fan of the double tap, but I also am used to Shimano from years past. I am debating switching the SRAM to the CX bike since it seems it can take more of a beating than the Shimano.

    Both bike have a BB30, I have Praxis rings on my road bike that will stay there if I move the ultegra to it. I may be buying a cassette since I like the 11-25 on the SuperSix.
    Any thoughts?

    i would do the rival, but when you say drivetrain are you including the chainrings too?

    are they both compact 50 large rings? or is one a 46? dont use the 46 for road and i know some people use 50 for cx but i personally prefer the 46.
    I ALWAYS rep back!!!
