Adjustable reach main lever and light-action release lever assure easy gear shifting and braking.

makes a huge difference

Posted06 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: rear derailure cable too short.
Makes a huge difference over the Sora shifters I previously had, the shifting action is accurate and smooth and the ability to now be able to shift when on the drops is exactly what you need,.
Even though the shifters come with cables i used the existing brake cables changing only the front and rear derailure cables, and that being said the rear cable was far too short, fortunately i had them fitted by my local bike store and they fitted a correct cable.

Standard Shimano

Posted07 November 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
Cons: Expensive
What else can I say? Shimano is the market standar for quality and reliability. Not only recommended if you expect some top-notch performance; in this case, you can either go to Shimano's higher lines. I just expected a less expensive value for a pari of levers, but I guess it's almost a commodity price.

Tiagra 9 speed STis

Posted18 April 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Just fitted the Tiagra 9 speed STIs on my old racer. Very easy to fit and set up and they work like a charm. I have had a set of Tiagra 9 speed STIs on my tourer for several years and they have proved very reliable. They seem to perform just as well as the Ultegras I have on my newer racer, light to operate and positive. I think that makes them a bargain.
