Great entry level rapid fire shifting
Smooth action on the levers
Can take a beating and keep working fine
If you are looking to move into the rapid fire shifting scene, the Alivio setup is the way to go. You can easily bang down through the gears and with the push of a thumb, work your way back up to the taller gears when the hills arrive. Very smooth and with preventative maintenance, will last a LONG time.
