Slick shifter, nice upgrade from deore

Works better than deore, hope it lasts longer than 1yr like the crummy deore that fell apart from fairly light use.

    Comments about Shimano XTR M980 10 Speed Shifter:

    After watching all the UCI guys spin out a 1X, and living right on the downward face of Tahoe, why would I NOT have a 2X set-up? I'm sorry, but saving weight by throwing one side of the shifting away, or paying $300+ for cassettes every 6 months isn't my idea of smart. Luckily, Shimano is still on-side and offers the older M-985 stuff, and I LOVE it. Bullet-proof and light. Period.

    Comments about Shimano XTR M980 10 Speed Shifter:

    The shift lever is pretty good, it's smooth and quiet during operation. But being an XTR, they could have added a gear selected indicator like the old ones used to have, so you know which gear you're actually in. Without this feature the shift lever looks like it's the same par as an XT. It's easy to install, it doesn't take an Einstein to figure out how to tighten one installation screw. The cable is also simple to install, just make sure not to adjust anything during initial install, you do that after hooking the cable just tight enough and only when it really needs it. I'll also buy more stuff from Jenson USA, because their prices are very competitive.

              If there is one product where I can tell a performance difference from XT to XTR it is definitely these shifters. I put some on my Jet9 RDO and the rear shifts so quickly and effortlessly, I must say the best I have ever used. I have two bikes with almost exact 2x10 drivetrain and the one with the XTR shifter shifts way better. So much that I am coming back to buy another set for the other bike. Only bummer is there is no I-spec mount.

                  This up grade provides the features that ensued i have no buyers remorse. Double up and triple down are nice to have and the push or pull option on the down shift are great.

                  • Q:

                    It says "left, 10 speed only". Shouldn't it say "left, 2/3 rings"? It is it a left side rear shifter?

                      A:

                      It actually reads, "Left only, 10 speed." We are indicating that this is only a left shifter, not both left and right, and that it is compatible with Shimano's 10 speed drivetrain components. Hope that helps clear it up. Cheers!
