Customer reviews for Shimano XT M786 2013 10 Speed Shadow + Rear Derailleur

Shimano XT M786 2013 10 Speed Shadow + Rear Derailleur

All-alloy construction leads to lower weight without compromising strength and durability. Four fluorine-coated link pin bushings make this one of the slickest shifting derailleurs on the trails. High rigidity wide outer link braces the pulley body to increase pivot joint rigidity resulting in a crisp shift. Strong return spring for a positive shifting feel. Durable sealed bearing pulleys.

Shimano are back at the top

PostedDecember 11, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
After using SRAM for the last couple of years I've noticed their quality drop off. Recently had an almost new X9 mech fail so thought I'd give Shimano a try again.
It seems they've upped their game and are back on top. The XT mech is faultless and shifts perfectly so far. Time will tell regarding durability but for now its working lovely. The clutch system seems to work well too.

nice build but looks cheap

PostedJuly 8, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: looks cheap
bought this to replace a short cage Zee mech, this XT medium cage mech is very plastic looking after the aluminum details of the Zee, it performs well though and so far no issues although I'm aware it may not be as robust as the Zee its replacing, smooth shifting and easy to keep clean, hopefully i wont bash it on any rocks !
