Quick changes

Posted28 March 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
A great upgrade at a good price. Easy to fit and the dial or indicator was quick to remove. A cover plate is supplied so that it all ends up clean and tidy.
Cable inner and outer came with it, along with ferrules and what not.
Overall a great buy and has a feeling of quality to it.

A worthy upgrade

Posted01 February 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
i upgraded from shimano deore set up, with these xt shifters, xt front mech, xt rear mech and its a great step up gears are alot smoother, plus you can change up with your thumb or finger because the lever has that function. I didn't change my front chainset or cassette to xt and it still works great. Might get the xt versions of them though at a later date so they all match. Highly recommend :)

This is an excellent shifter for those still running Mega 9 drivetrains. Worlds above the stock Deore lots of bikes came with.

Shimano XT M770 Shifter

Posted07 November 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Great shifter to replace the existing left hand unit which, being 11 years old, had broken losing high gear. It came complete with cable and outer and was easy to fit. In due course, will change the right hand shifter to match ( existing being silver, whilst new is black - which looks great)

An amazing upgrade

Posted01 February 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: none
If you're using Deore or Alivio, you'll know you sometimes have to hold the trigger and wait for the clunk from the back when going up the cassette no matter how good your set-up is. Sometimes there's a pause before the front derailleur does its job too. We'll forget all that. These shifters give a loud click when you shift and the response is instant and reliable. One of the best upgrades I've done. XTR quality on the cheap.

Pros: Good value, Good quality
The XT Mega 9 shifters don't really need much reviewing. They work a treat. I am using them for a tandem and the extra 60cm of cable doesn't really bother them too much. XT is a world yardstick in MTB components so you wouldn't expect any less than the best in performance and finish.
Since the advent of 10 speed MTB shifting, it is getting harder to find these shifters in a 9 speed version. Evans have both left and right shifters and at a good price.
Many Thanks Evans.
