I have a SRAM FORCE 53/39 crankset and ultegra shifters,cassette and mech. I would like to ask first if the cn-6700 chain is compatible with the above setup and works smooth and second if a sram cassette with an sram chain it would work better?

Responded on

SRAM and Shimano are compatible with each other. If you run Shimano shifters, the Shimano or SRAM drive train set-up will work. My personal preference is for Shimano, but either will work in either combination. The only thing to look out for is the hub-body. If you have a SRAM hub-body, just be wary the ridges on it are not too high. There are some SRAM hub-bodies that have higher ridges, so the Shimano cassette might not work.
If you have had a Shimano cassette on before, you can go with either the Shimano or SRAM option. You can also go with any of the 10-speed products from either company.
Hope that helps you
