Quality as you would expect from Shimano.

PostedSeptember 10, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
These shifters don't come with very good instal instructions but are relativley straight forward to fit none the less. Haven't been used much yet but seem good quality, as you would expect from Shimano.

mtb grip shifters to bar-end conversion

PostedMay 3, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Besides an MTB and a road bike, have a daily commuter/touring bike, with a straight handle bar and 8-speed grip shifters. Wanted to convert this setup to a drop handlebar with bar end shifters.
This setup gave more varied options to hold onto the handle when riding long distances and the gear shifting is much smoother. Also this exercise was part of a good learning experience to do the setup all by myself.
A quality product and is good value for money. Will most definitely recommend this one.

Affordable alternative to brifters

PostedDecember 11, 2009
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I chose these shifters when I converted the straight bar on my hybrid to a drop bar because I wanted an economical alternative to brifters. My rides are generally leisurely paced sojourns around the country or low-intensity fitness rides. And these really fit the sweet spot of quality and budget.
I switched to friction shifting the moment I got these and never have had to worry about misshifting at all. Gear changes are smooth as silk and if it isn't, I simply pull a bit more on the levers.
Being my primary commute bike, these guys have taken a lot of abuse and stood firm. I highly recommend them to my friends who are not on the lookout for high performance equipment.
