Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Price and nice crisp shifting.

Recommendation: Good beginner/intermediate component. Works when you need it and can take abuse.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Good product for a entry level bike product. Shift ok, get out line often and need to be set up a lot.

Cons: Slow shift speed

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap looking. A longer cage than Shimano FDs which prevents it from fitting in between some bike frames' seat tubes and the rear tire. Sluggish shifting.

Recommendation: Be careful when purchasing this FD for your 29er bike as the cage length may mess you up. Fits all my 26ers well with no problems. Spend a little more and buy the model up or go with an XT FD which shifts a lot better.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: none

Recommendation: I have not had a single problem with this derailleur in the year and a half that i've had it!! It dominates@
