I bought this as an upgrade from a shimano deore derailleur, the shifting has been improved.
This is reliable and does the job well.

Well designed and built mech.

Posted27 March 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I bought this to replace an identical mech which was trashed following a broken chain (ending up above the cassette in the spokes...). Very precise shifting, very easy to set up and beautifully made. A good solid mech for hybrid, tourer or light off road use. If this one got trashed I would buy another!

Awesome!

No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, simple to install
Cons: no instructions
I am relatively stupid when it comes to installing new products on my bike. After breaking my old component i decided to upgrade it with the most up-to-date version of my old mech. I found it suprisingly easy to install and adjust. Instructions would have been an advantage as i had to use the internet to search how to install and adjust it perfectly.

Precision and value

Posted26 August 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: nothing amazing
As with any Shimano components you can always expect quality and great performance. In my opinion this is a pretty bog standard and usable product, great for casual use to semi professional use. Unfortunately I wasn't blown away by this particular mech, It works and it works well. If I were to buy another one I would probably buy the shadow version. This is a design to reduce the mechs extension from the frame. This design greatly reduces the risk of damaging the mech.

Shadow Might keep the mech out of the way....
Posted 28 October 2014
.........but the shadow chain guide bends more easily than this one if hit.
I know , because I bent one previously.
