      Oork well

      I used these to replace some old Deore LX 9spd shifters.
      They work great, once you get them adjusted correctly.
      Read the instructions. And take your time adjusting the rear cable.Read complete review

      Read the instructions. And take your time adjusting the rear cable.
      Probably not the best for hard core MTB riders.
      But for the price. The performance is good.
      I would buy them again.

      Bought these to use in conjunction with an LX crankset and LX rear derailleur (both of which have been performing flawlessly), but they are just not up to par with the tight shift patterns I'm used to with Shimano rapid-fire type pods. Even a friend of mine, who is not a seasoned rider, commented on how soft and undeterminable the shifting is, especially the rear derailleur. Keep in mind, this was with proper hanger alignment, cable tension, and H/L settings. Even though the price on these was right, shame on Shimano for making such a loafy feeling set of shifters. I currently use XT/XTR on my other two bikes, but still, for LX level, these things are just missing crisp shifting that would give a rider more confidence.

      These shifters work great so far. I've used them on a 8 to 9 speed conversion on a 2008 trek 4300. All components have been changed to Deore LX.

      Comments about Shimano LX M580 9SP Trigger Shifters:

      These are 10 speed shifters. I still use them with my 9 speed, just have to make one more shift up then the gear I want then down shift once went it take the gear I want. Upgrading to 10 speed this winter. Could use a cover for when you remove the indicators. BUt this is a great low cost shifter.

      Comments about Shimano LX M580 9SP Trigger Shifters:

      I bought two pairs of these, one for my hardtail XC bike to replace the factory Deore units that had worn out, and one to upgrade my 5" travel AM bike from the factory Alivio 8-speeds. Both have been excellent upgrades but the 8- to 9- speed conversion has totally transformed that bike for the better. As a bonus, they also look much better hanging from the bars than the old ones, and the orange gear indicators are much more easily readable while bouncing around the trail.
      One problem I did have was with the secondary, push-to-release function on the trigger. Neither of my old shifters had this feature and when I first installed these ones I accidentally shifted up a number of times before I got used to it. Once I did get used to it however I have not had this problem, and I am glad for the added option of shifting up with my thumb instead of with my index finger.

      • Ease Of Adjustability
      • Quick shifting

      • Condensation Builds Up

      Best Uses

        Up and down shifts are smooth and quick when properly adjusted. Buttons are comfortable and ergonomical. Only bad side is that condensation builds up under the gear display.

            I used this for a build up I was doing for my wife. When I test rode the bike I couldn't believe how crisp the shifting was. I have XT on my bike and I couldn't tell a big difference.

            Comments about Shimano LX M580 9SP Trigger Shifters:

            So far I have resisted going to 10 speed since I have bought many quality 9 speed products from Jenson. At some point I may, but for now these are keeping me going. I bought these when they were new OE, they are a bit higher now, but come with outer cables in a retail box.

                I needed to replace my wife's shifters on her Trek Fuel 90. The LX shifters offered an affordable price, reliable performance, and Shimano's dependability. Very easy to install and adjust. Jenson offered these shifters cheaper than anywhere else.

                    Comments about Shimano LX M580 9SP Trigger Shifters:

                    These trigger shifters were an upgrade from the cheaper Alivio that were factory fitted on my MTB.

                    Shifting is much smoother and install was nice and easy. Jenson's price was the cheapest around and the money I saved allowed me to buy other quality parts.
