Basic and good.

PostedJuly 1, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Looks great
Got these as replacement for my old shifters and they are easy to install, no complicated adjustments or anything.
Looks good and feels comfortable to use. Brake handles feel sturdy and gear changers are easy to reach without moving your hand.

Perfectly adequate replacement shifters

PostedFebruary 27, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable
After my right hand gear lever basically exploded, I decided to push the boat out and replace both levers on my 10-year-old Specialized Hardrock. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Altus shifter pack came with inner cables and outer gear cable runs, as well as the shifters themselves. They work a treat. Only oddity I discovered was that the right-hand lever doesn't come with a barrel adjuster where the cable joins the shifter - but this is compensated by using the barrel adjuster on the derraileur when the cable stretches.
