    Strengths:    Good value for money.

    Weaknesses:    Slow to downshift and not very solid feeling.

    Bottom Line:   
    Does not shift a good as campy or durace but good value for the money. Sometimes it does not down shift very well and when it does it is a little slow.

    Strengths:    Decent shifting and weight, nice looking - reasonable price.

    Weaknesses:    Snaps in half when it's worn out and takes other parts with it.

    Bottom Line:   
    Shifts nice when clean but not as good as DA. Catastrophic failure when it wears out. I rode this one for 2 years (appx 2,000 miles). Cleaned fairly regularly. One day it just wrapped itself up in the chain and snapped in half. Rode single speed home.
