Strengths:    Solid build quality, no missed shifts, no chain hopping.

Weaknesses:    Upshift (to larger cog) is very difficult to reach.

Bottom Line:   
I've been riding a Trek 930 Single Track hardtail happily for over 10 years. It has been a great bike. I am very mechanical, and am having a very hard time getting used to the SX5 shifters. I have tried the shifters in 4 locations, and even with long fingers cannot find a comfortable spot to shift both levers. The smaller lever is so far back, you wouild think to use it like at XTR.

I am mostly a road rider, but my old Deore setup is so intuitive, I am going to return the bike, or have them convert it to SRAM Gripshift or Deore LX. I would not consider anything other than Campy or Shimano shifters again.

A nice choice for the HARO R3 Shift model. If you're looking for the finest shifting parts, here's a cheap choice. Cheap yet good!
