Don't deminish the performance of your prized XTR drivetrain by using substandard shift cable. Use authentic M9000 shift cables in unison with your M9000 drivetrain to acheive the best possible performance. Even if you are not running a XTR drivetrain, you can utilize the M9000 shift cable set to enhance the performance and feel of any level of Shimano componentry. This high-quality Shimano XTR shift cable set is compatible with other mountain groups, including SRAM. The OT-SP41 cables are entirely pre-lubricated with a special silicone grease for quick and precise shifting every time. By reducing inner cable friction, OT-SP41 shift cables are able to provide a quick response with easy and effortless shifting, which prevents power loss and shifting fatigue on those long, tedious rides. Arguably the best shifter cable ever engineered for mountain bikes.
Great Shimano upgrade from SRAM Attack grip shifts
I have a Novara (REI) Safari touring bike, in XL frame, and it came with the grips shifters. (3x9 drivetrain) I actually LOVED those things, but since they quit making them, are hard to find and expensive, and the "Amy" grip, rubber parts on them suck so bad, I decided to look into, and purchase Shimano's Rapid Fire shifters. GLAD I DID.
I was very happy to find this product because I HAD to have the windows where you could see what gear you were in, be able to downshift more than 1 gear at a time on the rear derailleur, (3 at a time with this product) and be able to up shift by either pushing with your thumb on another lever, or pulling that same lever with your index finger. (the "plus" part) As a bonus, these have the intergrated V-brake levers (all one part held onto the handlebars with one allen bolt) that work with my Shimano cable disc brakes! Cool.
I was also pleasantly surprised to also find upon my first test ride, that pushing the left/front derailleur lever just 1 click (albeit a long push) I could get the next, larger chainring. On my SRAM's, it was 3-4 clicks to get enough pull on the cable.
The only negative that I had, which most people won't, is the fact that the cables and housings were too short by like 6 inches. Again, it's because I have a touring bike, with a long top tube, long wheel base, AND I have risen my handlebars/shifters/brakes up a lot. So I just used the rear housing and cable on the front, and went out to my local TREK bike store for some proper Shimano brake cable and housing for the rear. No biggie.
I am also liking these thumb shifters a lot as I have no right wrist. That's right, they fused it together completely 10 years ago, so I no longer have to crank my whole arm up and out, using my elbow and shoulder joint to make a big 6 or 7 gear shift change on the grip shifts, and now just use my thumb to push 3 times, going down 3 gears, 3 gears, 2 gears, for my 9 speed cassette.
All in all, a very good set-up if you ask me, and at a fantastic price for what you get. I also believe from all my research, and now my experience, that this is Deore quality Shimano Rapid Fire shifters, just many years old, so they renamed them to make way for the 10 speed + stuff. The grey color on the brake levers of this product matched my brand new Shimano, 2 piece, triple crankset, chaingaurd perfectly. Coincidence? I don't think so. : )
A friend suggested I use this cable and housing combo to improve shifting performance on my Santa Cruz Bronson. The generic cable and housing that came with the bike made shifting to easier gears tough for my thumb.
After installing the new M9000 housing and cable shifting action was light and precise, the way it should be.
This kit was also much cheaper than a lot of other high end shifter cable kits. A great deal and a great product. Perfect.
