I have a 2012 Specialized Stump jumper elite. It has the Sram carbon S-2200 38/24 crank set. It also has the Sram X7 derailleur. I have been riding it for a year and a half and over the last few months it has been getting harder and harder to shift up to the big ring. This is my race bike so it is well maintained. The shop thinks I need to upgrade the derailleur (they say the X7 is "crap" ) but the more I research it I was wondering if it was an issue with the ring gear, specifically the pin system that lifts the chain onto the big ring. I love the 38/24 set up but the up-shifting is driving me crazy.
Have any of you guys had this problem?
What would be a compatible ring gear set?
Thanks for your help.
