Smooth & clean

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
I've ridden with this for over 3 months now as a replacement on my MTB. No problems as yet.
The changer is ergonomically shaped, with clean, quick transition through the gears - especially useful if off-road or caught out on a hill.
The face is minimalist with simply lines -slightly bulkier than the previous one, but has not dominated the handlebars.

Had to get an 8 speed!

PostedJuly 27, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
Cons: Heavy
Needed to replace the rear mech on my sons bike so dragged an old XT one I had out of the tool box. Unfortunately the SRAM X4 he had dies not work with shimano so I needed an 8 speed shifter. The Alivio works well and the finger/thumb shifter is easy to use. The unit is quite heavy though. However it also feels well made and robust. My only other option would have been to upgrade the chain cassette and rear mech!
Overall a good unit which works well.

Great that the shifter arrives with an 'inner wire' already located ready for use.
