Does a decent job

This FD does a decent job of downshifting however I noticed some weakness on the upshift. I sometimes had trouble with it not moving the chain correctly in that it would skip along the big ring a few times before catching. I swapped my Shimano 105 FD back onto my bike, kept the SRAM shifters and all is well again. The upshifts are back to being lightning fast and very smooth.

The SRAM Rival FD works fine however the Shimano 105 was noticeably better
