Hey i did read a lot on the internet about mixing 10/11 speed components but I stll have some questions.
I have sram red 2X10(53/39) group and I got a nice deal on 11spd crank(50/34). As far as i know 11spd crank should work with the rest of 10spd components.
But,
my front derailleur is broken and I need a new one...
What should I buy, 10spd front derailleur or 11spd?
Which one would work better with 11spd crank while the rest of the group is 10spd inc. shifters?
And what chain to use then?

Thanks

    10/11 should be fine on the crank and FD. I ran 10sp rival shifters an rear mech with a Force 22 FD and crankset, using a 10 spd chain.

    Youll only really have problems putting different shifters to RD's.

    crank will work fine

    if ypu have 10 speed shifters you may as well use 10 speed mech

    chuck a £15/20 KMC on it and it will be perfect

    SRAM is forwards and backwards compatible. 10 speed shifters will work with 11 speed derailleurs operating as 10 speed. 11 speed shifters will work with 10 speed derailleurs operating as 11 speed. It's also compatible across models so doesn't matter if you mix Apex with Rival, Force or Red.
    TACX iFlow - basic, Bushido smart -Rubbish, Elite Kura - not smart, Direto - awful, Tacx Neo1 - perfect.
  • Get the new force 22 front derailleur it comes with the chain catcher and is just as cheap as old stock 10 speed.
