    Strength:

    This der worked well... I don't think that you would ever need anything more than this.

    Weakness:

    nope

    This der works really well... I only used for a little while on a road bike that I had but got rid of the frame to buy my Steelman cyclocross frame. I solf the road bike frame with the front der because it was a braze-on front der, and they seem to be hard to find. Overall this front der works well.. I have never been a fan of front der index shifting though... but that is just me.

    Strength:

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

    Weakness:

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

    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.

    Strength:

    Clean, smooth, shifting action.

    Weakness:

    Took me a while to tweak the high/low tension

    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.'
