No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Uncomfortable
These shifters are the worse ergonomically designed i have had to use. they were on the bike i bought and taken off after one ride of two hours. the problem is that the big paddle closest to you, is to far away from your thumb, in fact your thumb is in front of it; and as it is to big anyway you have to reach back around it to push it forwards. you also have to reach under the bars to push the front paddle forwards to shift up a gear. which if you set the rear up so you can get to it, then the front is to far away.
but what is really bad is this - if the paddles were the other way around, big at the front and smaller one at the back you could get to both of them perfectly- Now, how did they manage that?

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
These shifters are easy to fit and have worked efficently. They differ to Shimano shifters in that both upwards and downwards shifts require the levers to be clicked forwards rather than fore and aft.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, easy installation
I've already been using a set of SRAM X5 shifters for the past year on a previous bike I owned, so when I came to re-build my girlfriends bike, I had no hesitation in purchasing these again. Beautifully made and finished with precise, easy shifting using just your thumbs. One press of the up lever will shift up one gear at a time, whereas the full stroke of the down lever (ten index shifter) will jump across four gears if required, otherwise you can shift one gear at a time with accuracy and ease. Easy to fit (integral 25mm clamp), supplied with gear cable pre-installed.
