"Replaced 9 year old deore rear derailleur with thid RD-M531. Easy to install and set up (shimano instructions included). Gear changes now silky smooth - like a new bike. On-line price was competetive and next day pick up from local Halfords."

Pros: cheap, functional
Cons: not x0, not xtr
"If you have worn or bust a 9-Speed XT or XTR then this is a great replacement while you save for that magic 2x10 that you really want but the wife won't let you have!"

Pros: reliable
"I wanted this as it's a good level in the Shimano range without being too fragile for heavy use in "Off the Beaten Track" cycle touring. I have Deore on one of my other bikes so was confident in choosing this one. The situation changed and I realised that I needed other parts more urgently. The Halfords branch I dealt with were fine about me returning the mech' unused and taking other equipment in it's place, Thanks."
