    Strengths:    Lightweight. Smooth shifting.

    Weaknesses:    Not quite DA, but so much cheaper.

    Bottom Line:   
    Well after I mutilated the Tiagra rear derailleur that came with my bike I found an Ultegra rear derailleur for a good price ($AUS99 = $US190). I must admit the Ultegra rear derailleur shifts great and is lighter too.

    Strengths:    Flawless operation.

    Weaknesses:    None noticed.

    Bottom Line:   
    Light operation. Never failed to shift promptly up or down, whether under load or not, when used on a 14..25 rear cluster. Brillaint. No sign of wear despite a year's hammering. Anybody looking for a triple rear mech (used with Shimano chain and rear cogs) will not be disappointed with this rear mech.

    Strengths:    Lightweight, smooth shifting, easy to clean and dismount.

    Weaknesses:    None Yet.

    Bottom Line:   
    I certainly can't complain with it at all. It has provided flawless shifting under load and in the rain. If properly maintained and cleaned it might never faulter!

    Overall, great product.

    Strengths:    Smooth shifting
    Impact strength

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    I use this derailleur on my trial bike and landed several times on it while jumping around. However it hasn't broken jet and still shifts quite good. It is light too.
    An other plus is that you can adjust the two main pivot springs.
