2013 SRAM Red YAW Braze-On Front DerailleurEven the most dialed-in front derailleur can drop a chain under the right circumstances -- just ask Andy Schleck. Although the consequences will pale compared to Schleck's 2010 Tour experience when it happens to you or me, having to stop and re-engage the chain is still annoying as all get out. When it comes to maintaining the integrity of the chain/chainring interface, the 2012 SRAM Red Yaw front derailleur is a game-changer. Not only does the derailleur cage move back and forth, it also rotates, maintaining a precise angular relationship with the chain. That means faster. smoother, more precise shifts every time, eliminating the need for trimming. And to seal the deal, SRAM engineers even incorporated an integrated chain keeper into their elegant design. Adding minimal weight and tons of peace of mind, the ingenious little paddle-like device ensures that the only thing you'll be dropping is your buddies as you're sprinting for the county line.
