Hi! I will receive a new bike with shimano xt 3x10 rear derailleur and slx shifters. I was wondering if the new shimano get disajusted after a while of riding (and in muddy conditions) and you need to go to the bikeshop a few times to get it fix or get the cables changed? I had this issue with my older shimano drivetrain (2001).

I own sram XO 3x9 drivetrain and never had to go to the bike shop to get it fix or get the cables changed. The shifting has always been spot on in 3 years of riding!

I'm wondering what I should expect from shimano :p hopefully they have improved and they won't cause me any troubles! If they do, I'll switch my transmission back to the XO!


Thanks for your input!

Any new drivetrain needs some adjustment after a few rides. Your XO was an anomaly, or more likely, ridden and adjusted before you got it. That it needed no service in 3 years is very unusual.

Every rider should know how to make the simple shifting adjustment. Does not require a shop visit and takes just seconds to perform.
