    Strength:

    works fine, no compatibility flaw with shimano. Accurate shifting even with some mud.

    Weakness:

    cable can be hard to change sometime, but no big deal.

    I used this set for two seasons and I really love it. I do recommend it. Never had any problem. I am a mech level 2 and never see any client with some problem neither with this model. Not 5 chilis for overall rating, cause I know there are some better like the x.0 kit and xtr dual. But the half pipe are the best value rating all around for twisters.

    Easy to install, I just purchased these and installed them. The entire process only took about 45 min. Adjustment was easy and they appear to work as advertised. Multiple gear jumps are just a twist away and are much more intutitive than the LX units my bike came with. I will review again when I have some miles on them but my initial impression is a great set of shifters for a great price.

    Weakness:

    A solid upgrade for those who have lower end Shimano shifters. I rode a friends older bike several weeks ago with grip shifters and on the trail they make a big differencein your ability to get in the right gear at any time. Looks like a great upgrade for not much money.
