I have made the leap into the sram would and i must say, i am very happy. Totally fitted by mountain bike with some sram gear including these shifters. Sram always does it with a good design so i was pleased to put these slick looking shifters on my bars and for much less money then i thought i was going to have to spend. What i am most happy about with these babies is how responsive the shifts are, the one to one is really killer. Very pleased to be riding with some sram components.
i upgraded to these from a sram x4 8 spd setup to a 9 speed and the joy of having some extra gears is a awesome thing. the feeling of the trigger shifters to my old x4 was a nite and day difference. i recommend these to any one going from 8 spd-9spd. sram is way better then the other "s" company out there.
These shifters are an excellent product from SRAM. I had to put them on my bike because i put a SRAM rear derailleur on and the 1:1 technology screwed some stuff up. I like that these are robust and give an audible click sound. They are very crisp and look good too. Much better than the mushy-feeling Deore's on before.
Flawless operation for three years and still going strong.
