Strengths: Nice smooth shifting. Easy cable replacement which is a change from earlier grip shift products.
Weaknesses: Cheap plastic internals. Handelbar clamp is defective by design.
A great shifter while it lasts. The plastic holding in the detent spring is very weak (mine broke at only 2400 km), so this shifter should not be used by anyone who does any serious riding. The worst part about this shifter is the clamp to fix it to the handlebar. Actually it is not a clamp at all but a set screw which destroyed my aluminum handlebar.
