    Strengths:    Light weight.
    Can shift multiple gears at once.
    Can shift and brake at the same time.
    Front derailer trim.
    The company - SRAM!


    Weaknesses:    Errr.....ahhh.....ummmm....:o\
    I'm still working on that one. Maybe in the next four years something will show up.


    Bottom Line:   
    What can ya say? These shifters just flat-out work. I'll give it a try -

    Fast accurate shifts with no misses - ever.
    No adjustment needed after initial setup - ever.
    Shift the whole cassette with one twist of the wrist.
    Shift while braking (try it!).
    Zero maintenance.
    The best part is the front shifter which is dead easy to trim for no-rub front derailer performance. Its fine clicks allow for precise trimming.

    Great stuff.

    These shifters is the best thing that happened to me. I have never regreted grading up to them. They can really shifts. No matter how and where u ride your bike, they shifts wondefully.
    Maintenance are very very low and they are very accurate in shiftings!! a few words to rapid shifters: Throw your rapids.. and get a GRIP!!

    Strengths:    Quick shifts, smooth action, grips have soft comfortable feel and don't slip

    Weaknesses:    price - but I'm cheap and unemployed

    Bottom Line:   
    These shifters kick a$$. The problem I had with the half pipes was that I would accidently shift gears while jumping... the shorties completely solve this problem by allowing more had placement on the grip and just the inside of your thumb and forefinger on the actual shifter. This also allows for much better control of the bike....
