Simple to use. Works everytime

Posted17 October 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
I had to replace the Shimano's on my bike as my handlebars were stolen from outside the house!
These were the same as I had originally and they do the trick.

Shimano 2300 STI Levers

Posted13 October 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Bought these levers as I changed the bars on my Claud Butler Chinook from flat to drop bars.
The levers came with two cables and two lengths of cable sheath and, as my original levers were Shimano, I was able to re-use two of the cables which ensured the cable end nipples fitted into the levers correctly. I did need to buy two lengths of cable sheath to complete the conversion but these were very low cost.
The levers were easy to fit to the drop bars and, after connection of the cables, the whole setup of the brakes and gear changes was straightforward.
Fitting instrcutions are provided with the levers but I found it easier to download the technical setup sheet from the shimano website and print it on A3 paper rather than the A4 paper it is provided on as the print is small.
I've done about 300 miles since purchase and the levers have been reliable so far. I would recommend lubricating the levers with a small amount of GT85 or similar to ensure smooth action is maintained. Ensure cables are lubricated too for smooth action.
