Strengths:    looks cool

Weaknesses:    extremely complicated and fussy. way too much engineering was put into these shifters. for example they use bearings instead of bushings. Very cool but not necessary. You better have an exploded diagram when you open these guys up, coil springs and gears will be a flying. Sorry about the bad review but I have had my fill of frustration with these controls. First thing is you can't adjust the distance between the brake lever and the control levers when cupeled with the avid XX brake system. you can only adjust the up and down. The second big problem I had with this group is the large lever that is used on the front derailer strips out and slips easily. Plus I've had nothing but problems with the rear derailers lower pulley. Too much play in the cage and the chain constantly rolls off the pulley wheel Here is a link with pictures. http://forums.mtbr.com/drivetrain-shifters-derailleurs-cranks/200mi-sram-2x10-fixed-5k-shimano-pulley-731128.html

Bottom Line:   
I gear shifting group/lever shouldn't need to be this complicated. Its just a lever for god sake. My kids Walmarts shifters are more dependable. Make sure your local bike shop has a good mechanic that you trust, cuz I have a feeling you will be seeing him/her alot.

Strengths:    Very light, shifts well and very adjustable.

Weaknesses:    When shifting to larger cog/ lower gear in back, I wish it was a little more positive

Bottom Line:   
This is an amazing group! There is no other front shifting like XX. It is quick and positive. The rear shifting could be a little more positive when moving up the awesome XX cassette. When changing from an X9/XO drivetrain to the XX drivetrain I dropped over a pound. Only having to worry about two gears in front makes riding much easier. I may never go back to a 3x9 setup again. This drivetrain would help most anyone out there, especially the trailbike riders.
