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.
