 It almost doesen't swing up and down like my old derailleur used to. Very accurate. Im not mehanic but took me only 20minutes to mount it up and got it to work appropriate. And this shadow tehnology is working as it should. and for the final touch... this derailleur looks very cool =)

 Sooo smooth. I have has it for One year and have ridden at least 700kms and had no problems with it, would never downgrade from it again. I even get sticks in it and sometimes it's simply change gear and it's out, our get of and pull it out but just pure excellence

 Extremely precise shifting, even under hard ridding, don't shifts without you permission, or sliding through gears on rocky trails, when pedaling. The bearing reel is a very good featuring, it didn't get stuck when ridding in mud or rainy days

 Awesome der. This is going to be my 3rd season on this der. I bought it when it forst came out and have had no problems with it, it still shifts as crisp as the day I got it. The direct cable routing is awesome, and gets snagged far less often. Having the der tucked under the chainstay is really nice too, I have crashed multiple times, and taken this der dh'ing and have not yet hurt it or bent a hanger.

 This is a really good mech, I got it cheap off CRC and it's been absolutely fine so far, and been light and sexy Smile

Got the short cage version cos I'm running a 12-28 with one ring and that's been fine too.

 Best value for money rear mech on the market, and i have owned most of them so i can compare from experince.

I run mine with a xt cassette and a kmc x9 chain, shift quality is exceptional no matter what i put it though!

 Profile is amazing. Rides flush with chainstay, is super stiff and uber responsive. An excellent buy for the price.( I got mine brand new for 85 bucks.)

 flawless mech, shifting is super smooth and when under power there is no clunking and slipping which then leads to you kneeing the bars Smile
