Read a review about the new Shimano SLX on Bikeradar.com....says it supposed to be a pretty good buy... Any thoughts? What about using it for all around All Mountain trail riding?
your current (3-speed) shifter and front derailleur will work fine...you will only need to readjust the high limit of the FDFreesteaderThed said:I have a question regarding the SLX.
If you switch over to use the 36-22t double ring crankset, you have to switch to the M665(667) front derailleur. What I want to know, is if you require a separate 2-ring shifter, or will the three position shifter still work?
I have been looking to see if there is an M665 shift pod, and have not found one.
Confess, you just wanted to show off you crank arm sticker mod.D1PHAM said:I have a pair of double SLX cranks. I find them to be very stiff and not to bad with regards to weight. I removed the bashguard on mine and now they weigh close to 899 grams.
