 Replaces my beat-to-hell LX on my DH/FR bike which kept banging against the chainstay. The SLX mounts a bit more towards the rear so it never strikes the chainstay.

Shifts really well and would even recommend it for XC use.

I had the Deore shift pods which work *OK* but it had a hard time keeping proper tension at time so it would "ghost" shift. It could also be because the shifter pods were at least 3 years old and have seen a fair amount of crashes.

I installed a set of LX shifters which cured my ghost shifting so if you plan to run these, I'd mate them up with at least an LX shifter. If you already have an LX, XT, XTR or Saint then you're golden!

 An XT with a sturdier spring and steel (instead of aluminum) body. Crispy and quick changes. Few grams heavier than aforementioned XT. Jockey wheels are a bit on a rubbish side but way too easy to replace to moan about. Replaced to yet another SLX countless of times.

 The SLX rear derailleur has Shimano's new "Shadow" design, that helps to resist unnecessary movement. Very precise shifts, and the new cable routing system loses that "loop" required in previous designs.

 Shadow technology works well - the derailleur wont hit the chainstay anymore. But i dont get it set up correctly to use all gears - might be my fault...

 If you snapped the hangar, I would say it is more your fault.
