Fuck you ScRAM!

To those of you out there that prefer SRAM products, I ask you why?

I'm not going to get into the warranty thing, or how many "known issues" this shit has, I just want to point something out.

I put a full XTR group on my Enduro a month or two ago and have been trying to get ride of the SRAM group that came with it. The group is barely used and is high end stuff. If you were to buy it at retail the parts would go for $1500. Unfortunately, you can buy just about any SRAM product that you want, at below cost on the internet. And I'm not just talking about a few sites, I'm talking the market is completely flooded with this crap.

Case in point, you can get a set of Elixir CR for $159, the set retails for $450. Cranks, forget it.

I just want to point out, that all of you who have called me a hater, may want to consider this fact. I'm apparently not the only person out there that doesn't want this shit. Everyone is selling something that is ScRAM... In the same time that it took me to get extremely frustrated looking at SRAM brake prices, I searched for Shimano. There is only one set of M980 brakes for sell and they are at retail. Everything else is an older model and still holding a descent price.

Fuck you SRAM!
