    SRAM rival rd vs SRAM force rd input

    I thought I'd ask in this forum since it is perused more often. I'm in the process of doing a build with SRAM parts. I already have the '09 Rival cranks, fd and shifters but don't know if going Force on the rd is worth the cost. What "say you?"

    Match them up as long as its all Rival, unless those few grams or worth the cost to you.

    IMO...I'd just go Rival. Unless you can find a deal on a Force RD.

    Rival. There's no difference except maybe the weight of 5 drops of sweat.

    Plus there is the $300+ difference in groups, and even more parted out.

    So far I've only spent $400 on everything but the RD and brake calipers. I don't need calipers though. My build will be less then an '09 group by about $100.

    The black Rival RD is sexy.
