    Strengths:    Clean, smooth, shifting action.

    Weaknesses:    Took me a while to tweak the high/low tension

    Bottom Line:   
    It came with the group and works just nicely. I tweaked around with it and the bike shifts accurately and the chain is ready to go the instance I shift.

    Awesome product, and an ease to install and 'tune.'

    Strengths:    Shifts the chain from one ring to another. Good integration with the overall Ultegra 9sp system.

    Weaknesses:    Not a nice looking as DuraAce or Campy Record, but a whole lot cheeper.

    Bottom Line:   
    Good value for flawless front shifting. On a side note, my front shifter has worked fine, but the rear Ultegra shifter has crapped out after 6k miles.
