 Nice shifter if you want something simple but long lasting. I am finding it to perform very well with my SRAM X9 derailleur. One con I have found is I sometimes accidently shift down when pushing up or when sitting at the top of a trail.

 i bought this to pair up to my sram x9 derailleur and it has worked flawlessly.
the levers are long enough for me to reach inboard of my brake levers.
the design reduces the chance of scratching the unit as it is under slung, unlike shimano equivalents which look like baghdad the first time you flip the bike over!

 Superb shifter. These are what sold me on Sram. I had previously used Shimano shifters and Derailleur. When I made the switch I was amazed with the difference. The 1:1 ratio used by the Sram has many inherent benifits over the 2:1 used by Shimano. The 1:1 ratio allows for smoother more reliable shifts than can be provided with a 2:1 ratio, a 2:1 is more affected by kinks in the cable, and grime in the cable housing.. These are a Excellent shifter for someone on a budget..

 Great product. Shifts slightly and with great ease. For two seasons are reliable, no problems with them. I recommend!
