Sicklines always does a thorough review of the gear they test and are by no means shy on telling us what they think and we enjoy their opinions. Even though they are probably laundering money and cheating the tax system, they are a good group of guys who spit the truth.
Check out the Elixir review here.
Now, after I posted this up John from the Phillipines asked about his Carbon CR blades that he has broken.
Keep in mind that we fit with no issue the ELIXIR R & CR models WITH the Aluminum blades.
John, you have the models with the Carbon Fiber blades and would need to source out from SRAM part no. 11.5015.028.000 & 11.5015.028.000 this includes the Elixir Lever Pushrod and the Coupling Kit, Elixir Lever Service Kit.
If you own an ELIXIR 5 you would also need a kit but for this model only the Lever Pushrod is needed, SRAM part number 11.5015.028.000
So Elixir R/CR high five, good choice but unfortunatley SRAM made changes on the other models and you will need a kit that they only sell, too costly for us to reproduce.
I hope that helps John.
