Strengths:    Almost everything you want from a derailleur from a non-competitive point of a view.

Weaknesses:    The jockey wheel bearings rusted out under a year due to Canadian winter salt. Re-greased them and they work like a charm again.

Bottom Line:   
I've tried the Sora up to the Ultegra compoents and so far the Ultegra coupled with the 105 shifters has given me the sharpest and quickest shifting. I've not tried out full ultegra setup yet but it probably won't make much of a difference. Excelltent durability in Canadian winter and it gets the job done!

Strengths:    Very much copasetic behavior, despite being pushed a bit beyond its specs.
Decreases drag noticably

Weaknesses:    Top pully has rubber junk seals that do drag; however it only takes about five minutes to dispose of the rubber bands and grease that pully up nicely.

Bottom Line:   
This product has less drag than the 105 rear derailleur, and this little Ultegra can manage SRAM's 11-28 by 10 cog cassette along with SRAM's 1070 chain.
The miniature Ultegra has no problem with this and no problem with the 50-34 compact crankset. That's a 33t spread and Ultegra 6600 Short Cage does it with grace.

Favorite Ride:   all over the midwest

Price Paid:    $55.00

Purchased At:   ebay

Similar Products Used:   105 long, LX short (nice!), XT Shadow medium, and a half dozen more.

Bike Setup:   Adventure into the 10 cog system led to SRAM cassette, chain, and cranks, along with Ultegra rear derailleur, FSA Energy front derailleur, and Shimano R700 shifters. . . Hey, I'm just going with what works. This little derailleur is fantastic!

Bottom Line:   
I have a 2004 Ultegra 9 bike and a 2005 Ultegra 10 bike. The Ultegra 10 rear shifts are much more direct, smooth & positive.
