Strength:

Easily the best shifter for the money - possibly the only shifter for the money?

Weakness:

A bit basic in design and build quality

I put these on an old bike I was putting together for an old girlfriend around 10 years ago. That relationship ended, but I rescued the bike after she moved and left it in a shed, and it's now being used occasionally by the current partner! Long story short; neither woman shared my passion for cycling and the bike has seen little use, but every time I've used it these shifters have worked great with older Alivio & STX mechs. Great way of replacing older shifters on a budget and probably no worse than the older gripshift of the 90s. If the SRT-600 died on one of my other bikes I would be happy to use these.

Everithing this shifters are the worst shifters that I've used I know SRAM and their products but this ones are not SRAM's. They are extremly fragile, difficult to mount the cable and they have a poor shifting

This shifters are'n good at all, why did SRAM produce this don't buy this shifters you'll get mad

ummm? hmmmmm? well? uggghhh? (scratching head)It aaaa? It.... It is made by Sram... I think?

Weakness:

This whole thing is a weakness! First off it fell apart before I even atatched it to the bicycle and after I put it back together and installed it on the bike I had the Pro's at RIP YOU OFF BIKES adjust them. These things were hard to shift and inacuracte. I always had to look down and see what the hell this crap was doing. It clicked more times than a Timex. uugghh? why? why did you make this crap sram! you know this is junk!!! was this thing a joke? It is never acurate! the gears are always off. I was in 7th gear and the shifter said 6th! anyway Istripped my 7speed junk off my bike im going to full 8speed race style ill be using the full 9.0 Sram setup!! hopefully I wont be disapointed

Dont buy this!! at all!!! and if your on a budget and need grip shift your better walking your bike!! this crap sucks it's horrible!1 LISTEN TO ME DONT BUY IT!!!


I rate this thing horrible~~

Strength:

Hey, it shifts, its cheap

Weakness:

Vague adjustment.

Despite what these other alleged purists have to say, these things do work, are reliable (I haven't broken an MRX shifter since '96, and I have three different MRX shifters (all 7-speed) on three bikes with different set ups. I ride, too...every darn day. I DO, however take care of my equipment, and generally don't expose any of my equipment to the ignorant abuse that these posuers obviously do theirs. These shifters are FINE for anything but competition. I have been riding bicycles (in competition and otherwise) for 15 years or more now, and I know a decent component when I see it. I REALLY know it when I use it. These things MAY be a bit vulnerable to crashes, as they are 100% plastic, but they are cheap enough that they can be readily replaced. Let me state this: SRAM makes NO junk, and without them we would be at the mercy of Shimano's proprietary cluches. These are great for entry-level cyclists, crusisers, kids, old grannies, and health-cycling enthusiasts. Maybe this site needs a child-filter to prevent little destructive boys from posting on it.

Strength:

Simple, durable, comforatable grip

Weakness:

Only compatible with 6/7 seven speed derailleurs.
Front derailleur control is annoying, takes too many clicks to shift.

Came with my entry level bike. Can't complain too much for what I paid. Super durable and comfortable grips.

Strength:

Works, good for those older bikes with 7spd, lighter than rapidfire.

Weakness:

Not great construction, grip isn't tacky enough for wet conditions

I used these when I raced in the beginner class. The bike I used then is now my beater bike, but with almost 2000 miles on the shifters they still work decent. The only real problem is that the grip part of it isn't as aggressive as their more expensive models (9.0) so it's pretty hard to shift it when you have sweaty hands (if you ride with no gloves) or when it's wet outside (even if you wear gloves). Otherwise, the quality and weight is good for a $30 shifter, and it's one of your only choices if you ride with 7spd. So go get it.

None -- I guess cheap

Weakness:

Everything you can imagine... poorly constructed, feel apart after 6 months of use. Never worked properly even after 4 visits to the bike shop. Was always missing changes between gears.

Never buy this product again!

works ok, when it works

Weakness:

poorly constructed, front derailer side seperated out of its little housing after 1 week, got it fixed...and it did it again, i think it's gonna see the trash can very soon...it came stock on a specialized hardrock...also when going up hill, i have a tendancy to shift gears accidentaly, that prob would be solved with rapid fires.

these things are garbage after a few weeks, i am going to upgrade to some xt or xtr rapid fires. screw this gripshift crap. i don't like it
