Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Quality Easy to use

Recommendation: I really like the feature where you push forward on the lower lever to drop one gear and pull back to drop 2. Makes dropping gears faster. Good product for the price

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Smooth
2 & 3X compatible

Cons: None

Recommendation: These are exactly what you would expect for a higher end shifter. Solid and smooth! The I-Spec feature is really sweet too, there are no indicators on them and they hook into your brake levers so you don't have separate clamps for everything and it keeps your setup nice and clean looking. Highly recommended!

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Rapid fire shifting. 2 way release. Lightweight. Flexible for mounting options. 3x10 or 2x10 at the flick of a switch.

Recommendation: These shifters are exactly what you expect from Shimano. Crisp, accurate shifting with what seems like anatomically correct levers. If you run Shimano brakes, do yourself a favor and add the i-spec top covers to clean up your bars.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Quick,smooth responds everytime, adjustments are minimal through out the season.

Recommendation: Put on everything

December 12, 2012
Pros: crisp, little effort needed, push and pull feature

Cons: price?

Recommendation: These are much nicer in my opinion than SRAM X9. There is a lot more effort and movement to shift with sram and the shifting isn't nearly as crisp. They are a little expensive but worth it
