Smooth as Billy D Williams

I needed (wanted) another gear for hill climbs in my area, so I exchanged my 11-28 (1050) for the 11-32 (1070). I have a compact crank 50/34. I don't miss the #14 either. I also upgraded to the SRAM 1071 chain. I did not have to change the rear Derailleur; the SRAM rival mid cage works. The 1070 cassette, along with SRAM 1071 chain is as smooth as Billy D Williams and as quiet as a church mouse. As I road past walls and through a tunnel, I noticed the drive train was really quiet. They shift smoothly, too. I am a happy camper.
