Pros: performace
Cons: not available individually
"Bought these shifters to replace a previous generation Deore shifter that broke. Unfortunately had to buy a pair as not available individually. Came supplied with cables and outers, fitting was without incident. Overall a good quality, sturdy product giving swift accurate gear changes. Recommended."

"I needed a new set fairly quickly after breaking one. Got these with a 20% off promotion, then a further 10% off for being a British Cycling member, so got a good deal on them and paid pretty much the same as the usual big online cycle shops were selling them for. They have a nice quiet solid feel when changing gear and so far haven't missed a beat.
Got them fitted and set up within an hour, cables look of decent quality as well (stainless steel if I remember correctly). The only thing that might be an issue for some is that it only came with three lengths of outer cable, and you often need 4 lengths. As I'd only recently put new gear cables on I re-used the existing outers and have kept the new ones as spares."

"Bought these as a direct replacement for a set I managed to damage; the fact that I bought the same item as a replacement should be endorsement enough :-)"
